Bicycle Pumps

Frame Pumps

Fixing flats is a hassle, even when you've done it a hundred times. You just want to get back on the road and to your destination. I like full length pumps that fits on the frame. When you replaced or repaired the tube, you'll want a full-size pump, not a mini, for a full stroke of air!

 

Mini Pumps

Mini pumps are popular among people who ride carbon bicycles or any bicycles with radius joints that can't hold the frame pump, and riders who've had two or more frame pump stolen off their bicycles. Mini pumps can fit into a bag. The best mini pumps telescope on the back-stroke, so you pump more air than their compressed size. But still not as good as a full-size pump.

 

I still prefer the full-size pump

How about you?
