This pump is tiny and fits in a small bag that can be attached to your saddle. It seems well made and powerful. I will give it a try tonight. They were disappearing like hotcakes at lunchtime. I saw 3 go while I was in my local store.

I bought one of these a while back. It broke the first time that I tried to use it. Junk. Avoid.

Which bit broke? Did you get a refund under the 3 year warranty?

I tested the pump last night. Works as well as a cheapish hand pump without having to use any vigorous hand pumping. Not sure how accurate the manometer is but the pump will do in emergencies.

"Which bit broke? Did you get a refund under the 3 year warranty?"

The metal bit you put your foot on does not hold the pump upright strongly enough. It broke off when the pump slipped sideways the first time I tried it. It wasn't worth driving all the way back to the shop so I just binned it. I have one of their hand pumps which is great but this one is no good.
