    OT: Pump recommendations (backpack)

    Maybe should ask in the wheel and tire forum instead...
    However ..
    Currently carrying a crank brother power pump in my pack when I ride, however a couple of times I find if I'm not careful I'll break the seal on the valve stem (tubeless setup) so thinking that while I like the high volume or hight pressure capability of the power pump something with a flex coupling might be a better bet..

    Just wonder what your carrying?
    Thanks

    I went from CB to a Lezyne Pressure Drive. Huge improvement.

    Lezyne High Pressure Bicycle Hand Pumps

    Sure, it takes a few seconds to thread in the flex hose, but the entire process with the ability to crank on the pump much more indiscriminately is overall a big time saver. Not to mention that the Pressure Drive takes less strokes than the CB Power Pump. Lezyne makes some larger models also that will fit in a pack and use less strokes, but the Pressure Drive is already very good and oh so compact. They also have some less expensive mini models.

    +1 on the Lezyne. I've used one for the past two seasons. Best carry-along-on-the ride pump I've ever used, no contest.
    Strava made me do it....

    All good till you run out.
    If you hurt in your efforts and suffer painful dings. Then you are doing it right.

    I know, but I'm such a clumsy doof with a pump, so I carry a couple of CO2s (more depending where I'm riding).
