    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....

    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).
