A road pump that's actually functional

Most road pumps now are designed to be super tiny and light. Problem is, they can barely inflate a road tire. Most of the time, you would give up and just call an under inflated tire good enough. Not with this bad boy. 110 psi- no problem. Its not tiny, that's for sure, but it fits nicely out of the way next to my seat tube bottle cage. It is however deceptively light for its size. My hardcore weight weenie buddy saw it and I could tell by the look on his face, he was thinking "Omg, that pump is enormous". Then I handed it to him and he said "Wow, that's actually really light". I don't see him getting one soon, but he was impressed that it could get a tire up to full pressure quite easily, especially compared to my Topeak Pocket Rocket. I mostly ride alone, so I have to be able to fix anything that goes wrong or I'm going to be walking. I have yet to have to use it on a ride, but I have tried it out and it definitely works very well. Leave it at home on race day, but every other ride, make sure you have it.
