It’s tuff to get around that there are few things more disheartening than a puncture, but they can happen to the best of us no matter how hard we try to avoid them. Whether you are inflating after a repair at the roadside or just topping off the pressure before starting the day, a good pump is an essential on any longer ride. Pump aficionados are divided into two camps, some like to pump by hand comforted by the knowledge that no matter what happens they can build up pressure, while others prefer the convenience of a CO2 powered inflator. With the Crank brothers pump below you get the best of both worlds. This pump is capable of using a CO2 cartridge, but it also functions as a handpump and it even has a gauge to let you know when you are nearing done. Any small volume pump is a compromise, but this little piece of kit can get you up to over 8 bars of pressure and it can do so quite effectively. When you’re done it stows away on your frame with the accompanying bottle cage mount.
