  • 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 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.
