The Birzman Velocity Apogee Mini Pump may be a little guy, but it can lay down 160 PSI, so it's never met a road tire it can't handle. While it's meant to be frame-mounted or stashed in a pack, it features the same CNC-machined aluminum construction as Birzman's full-sized floor pumps, with a polished finish and grippy details on the bottom and the handle.
The extendable QR Hose slides into the barrel and extends quickly with a single pump, and the twisting Snap-It Apogee makes the Velocity quickly and easily compatible with both Schrader and Presta valves. The Velocity also features Birzman's Air Lock design, which means it can work as a shock pump, too, so you can adjust your fork while you're on the trail. An included bracket makes for easy frame mounting.

Does the Chuck screw onto presta valves? If not how would you describe and rate how secure the connection is to a presta valve?
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Nice well constructed pump with the ability to pump of presta or schrader valves on the go. These little pumps are always a bit of a chore to use, but this one gets the job done faster than the old one it replaced. Luckily I haven't been forced to use it yet, but it's nice knowing I have it on me when I get far from home.
