    Any suggestions on a light pump that I can out fit my new bike with?

    Cute, but I think those heels would lead to more flats.

    On the "other" board, they've been talking about a mini pump by Crank Bros., or the Topek Road Morph. Also CO2 cartridges in conjunction with a mini pump.

    Topeak Road Morph

    Love love love my Topeak Road Morph.

    http://www.rei.com/product/4684369.htm

    It turns into a floor pump with a foot thing and a gauge, so you can push into the ground instead of hanging on to the pump and trying to use only upper body strength to fill the tire. I'm somewhat of an expert at fixing flats on the road, since I've had at least a dozen this season. I can fill a tire to 100 lb with the Road Morph, and I was lucky to get 50 with my other pumps. Also helps avoid breaking off valve stems, since it's got a flexible tube that connects to the valve.

    Hey V - yep heard lots of good things about the Road Morph also Barbieri Carb One Mini Pump. Blackburn also makes a frame pump thats pretty light (sorry cant remember its name).

    Good luck with the pump hunt and let us know what you end up with.
    The most effective way to do it, is to do it.

    The frame pump I have and works well is Blackburn Airstick One:

    I went to the Topeak site - they've got some new, smaller pumps. The mini morph and the micro rocket look interesting.

    Wow - that Micro Rocket looks cool.

    No frame pumps. Yes they work great. It's what I have now. But the new light bike is getting outfitted with a new light tool kit. But I'm paranoid enough that I'd rather have a pump than CO2.

    Topeak Road Morph, Topeak Road Morph!!! (The guy that borrowed mine twice at the July 200k now has his own...) I like that it has a pressure gauge.

    I had that Crank Brothers mini, and, while cool to look at, never could get it to work, and neither could anyone else that had contact with it...Maybe it's defective!

    Road Morph is cool because it transforms from this tiny thing into a pump with a foot deal to stand on (just miniaturized) and it even had a gauge, _and_ it is simple to figure out even if you haven't messed around with it for months and months.

    Yeah, I like my Road Morph, but the mini morph is intriguing.

    I think I'm going to get the Micro Rocket. It's only 55 grams. I'll get it from REI so if it doesn't work well I can take it back. I have a Mountain Morph - like it. But it weighs 250 grams. Road morph weighs 260 grams.
