Decent price for a well reviewed mini pump. Anything carbon of course makes your bike faster.

I've a CNC Lifeline pump and despite being tiny (smaller than this one) it's capable of over 100psi. The reviews of this suggest it is also worth carrying, not something that can be said of all emergency pumps.

i've one. Fits nicely to the bike and does the job.
I've got one too, never used in anger but relatively easy to get tyres up to about 100psi. Not sure it was ever really £20 though. Got it a couple of years ago.
........
does this have a pressure gauge?
Looking at the reviews of Wiggle, no it doesn't have a pressure gauge nice looking mini pump though..
These types of pumps are for out on the road and to get you home should you need them, so a guage isn't really needed, pump it up properly once you are home.
OK review on bike radar but does seem to suggest that it was never a £20 pump.
I hate these mini pump things, nice that they're shorter than the old type but need to be a little bit careful that you don't damage the valve.

Agree with you there. I've ripped the valve clean out a few times using these, so you need to hold the valve end of the pump to stop it moving around. They are OK in an emergency and as long as you can get your tyres above around 90psi, which this can, it should be fine.

You can get mini pumps that come with a hose; easier to use.
