There are those who lament the end of parallel top tubes on bicycle frames. It was so easy to put a long frame-fit pump underneath it. Unfortunately for these people, the Lezyne Carbon Road Drive 2 Pump is only available now, not a decade ago. This pump is sleek, long, and reliable. It comes in two sizes; if you're mourning the loss of your last frame-fit pump, the long is a great replacement. It measures 283mm
The Carbon's barrel and handle are made from carbon fiber, FCT by Lezyne lingo. It means there is no metal sub-structure, just carbon fiber. The piston and the end caps are CNC-machined aluminum.
As with other Lezyne mini-pumps, this one comes with a hose. In this case, the ABS Speed Hose. This is a huge benefit for a few reasons. One is ergonomics; you aren't limited by holding the pump at a perfect right angle to the valve. A second is that this Flex Hose is ABS-equipped -- it has a bleeder valve on it. Because this is for Presta valves only, the pump head is fitted with a slip chuck. Press it on and it stays on.
Lezyne Road Drive pumps are longer and leaner than pressure drive pumps. The 17mm diameter means more strokes than the Pressure Drives to get to the same place, but with less effort per stroke. It comes in two sizes, Medium, and Large. Medium can fit in a pocket, but you'll probably want to mount the Large on the frame.
The Lezyne Carbon Road Drive 2 pump comes in Medium and Large. Medium measures 216mm long, and Large measures 283mm. The pump bracket is made of carbon fiber. Max pressure for this pump is 160psi. The color is Carbon Fiber.
