Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this pump for long distance touring where I am often unable to find high pressure air and need to conserve weight. This is the lightest pump I have found which is actually able to inflate tires to 100 psi or greater. Most mini pumps (which admittedly weigh less) can't come close. (This pump weighs 227 g or 8 oz by actual measurement.) Plus, the attachment to the stem with mini pumps risks damaging them, especially fragile presta valves. CO2 pumps are OK but the need to carry cartridges is a disadvantage, and they still can't achieve pressure as high. The beauty of this pump (besides its appearance, which is a work of art) is that the hose screws onto the valve (either presta or schraeder) making an airtight and gentle attachment. Several strokes reaches as high a pressure as any bike tire can handle. The inline pressure gauge option is recommended, and works well. The pump can mount on your frame to water bottle braze-ons with the included hardware. The water bottle cage can still be used. I rarely see products I like as much as this one. 5 stars.
