I have the medium road drive, I think, and can usually get my tires up to 90psi before I get bored. I think the problem with those mini ones is that they have a high volume, which makes it initially very easy to get lots of air in, but a lot harder when the pressure gets high. The road drive is a lot thinner, which means it puts in less air per stroke, but requires less force at higher pressures.
FWIW I have used it and the mini floor one and much prefer the road drive
Just looking on wiggle, and there are HV (high volume) and HP (high pressure) versions of that pump, worth making sure you have the HP version I'd imagine!
Mine's the small pressure drive mini. To boot, I lost a seal last week so I'd be lucky to anything out of it.
Yup. I've the more expensive pressure.
I still want one.
I got the pump suggested in the other thread. It's very light and not that big. The pressure guage is good.
I like it.
They are very good, Just be careful with frame size/pump length- I made an assumption on that with predictable results.
Zefal Velcro pump straps add peace of mind even when you have a pump peg.
The 'Plus' version is definitely worth the £2 premium too. Much more security and less scratchy if you've an alu pump.
