Because walking home sucks.
You'd rather not walk home, especially when you're deep in the backcountry or ten miles from the nearest outpost on some desolate country road. That's where the Crank Brothers Klic Hand Pump with Gauge comes into play, providing an essential lifeline of tube and tire inflation, should you run over an abrasive piece of roadside rubbish or puncture your tire on a sharp thorn while riding through the desert.
This compact hand pump is available in two distinct versions, with the high-pressure pump inflating road bike tires up to 120 psi and the high-volume pump offering a hefty burst of air with each pump stroke, so you can quickly inflate a mountain bike tire without tiring out your arm. It's upgraded with a built-in gauge with pressure readouts in both psi and bars, so you won't have to do the old squeeze test, just to know if your tires are properly inflated.
It comes with a flexible rubber hose for easier inflation and attaches to both Presta and Schrader valves with its magnetic head. This flexible hose neatly stores inside the handle when it's not in use, so you don't have to worry about it bouncing around on the road or trail. As a bonus, the pump attaches to your frame with the provided bottle cage mount.

- Q & A
Quite Good, a bit Complicated
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have had occasion to use this pump 4 times in recent weeks due to a poor job i did setting up my gravel tires tubeless. Once on the bike the action of the pump is flawless, and the hose isolates the valve from the movement of the pump, so there is no chance of breaking it with overzealous stroking. The process of getting the pump on the tire involves more steps and thinking than I really like. If you are into fast tire repairs, this may not be the first choice. I also found the hose & gauge peice rattled a bit inside the pump on rough surfaces. The problem was easily remedied with a bit of padding.
