-Combination hand and floor pump, CNC machined aluminum, with or without gauge -Flip-Thread chuck threads directly onto Presta and Schrader valves -ABS (air bleed system) chuck to allow release of back pressure and eliminate the chance of unthreading Presta valve cores -Includes 3mm diameter stainless steel wire foot peg and frame mount -HP: high pressure, road-specific design, 160 psi max -HV: high volume, MTB-specific design, 90 psi max
Strengths: The only portable pump that can actually get you spec'd pressure (110-120psi is no problem). All aluminum construction, easy flip screw on head, mountable on frame (no it's not as small as a mini pump).
Weaknesses: It's smaller than a frame pump, but not by much. My pump is all aluminum, including the connector for the flip head. Mine is all silver, no black or gold parts except for the hose. It was sold as model "HPG", I got it from Europe through ProBikeKit.
I bought this pump over 2 years ago, based on the other review the design must have changed. Too bad, the one I have works great!

Strengths: Portable. Fits in my hydration pack. Light and easy to use. Gets tires up to 100 psi. where other hand only pumps peak at 80-85 psi.
Weaknesses: collar that connects reversible flip flop valve is made of plastic. This cracked and now the pump is an shiny loss of 40 dollars.
Nice while it lasted. Trying to stick with hand pumps. May someday go to CO2. Only packable pump to closely reach 100 psi without causing your arm to fall off. Certain parts are cnc alloy but essential part that connects the flip flop head is plastic. This broke and renders the pump useless.
