    Hand pump for Mountain Bike

    Hello, I just got a 2013 Cannondale Trail 29er 5 today. I'm pretty excited! I'm looking for a good quality hand pump that can be mounted to the frame. Can you help with suggestions. I think one with some kind of hose on it would be best to make it easier but I'll look into all recommendations. Thank you for your help

    Hose is nice to have... I've had good success with the inexpensive pricepoint/sette brand one w/ a hose I've been using for a couple years. If I weren't such a tightwad, I'd buy a lezyne. Other than that, no issues with regular blackburn mini pumps & zefal frame pumps for many, many years. Especially on a 29r, it's nice to have more volume, if you've got space for a bigger pump.

    Yes, high volume for a MTB tire.

    I got a Blackburn Mammoth for a silly low price. It's been good so far.

    I've had some really pricy pumps, some mid line and still go back to the cheapo, Sette/pricepoint pumps.. they just work, Last, are reasonably light, and have higher volume than most.. by far the best bang for the buck... though the Lenyzne ones are really sweet
    Going to try and bring Trail Tire TV back. go take a look... http://trailtiretv.blogspot.com/

    Have the Alloy Drive. Works great, although Sette brand is fine too for the money.
