... but a bit fiddly to use. Takes time properly to attach to valve (maybe a matter of practice, which I hope - for obvious reasons - I never get

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stophes Excellent pump for schrader valves
Brilliant little pump, nice features for Schrader valve and presta valve attachment, not used on presta so cannot comment on that. Nice and small so weight is very good, pumps fairly quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bambi Excellent pump if you know how to use it
As the title suggests, this pump is fantastic if you know how to use it. The reviewers before me either had defective products or, as I suspect, did not use it correctly.
I have used this pump for three punctures on my road bike in the last few years (and even as my main pump for a while before getting my track pump!) and had no problems. I commute daily ten miles or so, and put another 100 miles in at the weekend usually. As another reviewer suggests, you MUST tighten or 'nip' the valves on your inner if they have a separate stem and valve before using this product (and any other pump that uses a screw technique).
Build quality is superb, the aluminium body is strong and light. The pump has taken a beating at my hands in order to achieve my desired PSI and still looks in pristine condition. The design is excellent - I chose this pump specifically for the pressure able to be achieved (much higher than my last two pumps), and the flexible hose (again, unlike my last two pumps) which helps protect your valves.
They only real double edged sword this suffers from is its compact nature. It is very small and light, but also more difficult to use because of this. That is really the only downside I can give, and the reason I would not give it a 5*. But, that having been said, it is a race pump.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ian83 Good pump and great compact size
Ordered this pump so I had something with me to get me home should I suffer a puncture out on my road bike.
Not had any problems with it breaking valves, though when using it with Presta valves I have had to remove and refit it, as I have found it not inflating the tyre and just building up pressure in the pump. Taken it all off and refitted and then works fine. Is a little frustrating. I think as it screws on it closes the valve core on Presta valves.
Wish I had gone for the Lezyne Pressure Drive instead seems to get much better review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Avoid unless you like buting new tubes
This pump doesn't work with presta valves - it gets stuck, and your only option is to rip the valve off, reulting in a wrecked tube.
Needless to say, if you're far away from home, this is an even bigger bummer.
Buy anything else, and you'll be better off!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous will pump upto 110psi in very few strokes, flexi cord nice feature.
i will never use this pump
when you have pumped up your presta innertube just undoing the locking nut on your flexi hose lets out some much air youll have a flat tyre again.
great for mtb wheels for presta valves this pump is junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Brilliant design
I found this to be the easiest mini-pump I've ever used largely due to the integral flexible hose. The dual valve is idiot proof & a wonderful, clever piece of design. Very strongly recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Useless pump, or useless me?
I couldn't get this to work at all on my presto and schrader valves on road and mountain bike. I just tighten on the valves when required but when I start pumping, the air doesn't go into the tyres at all and I just encounter lots of resistance. Valves have no problem with my normal floor pump and only with this topeak pump. Looks nice but it seems like a dud to me. What am I doing wrong? Is it me or the pump? The action is very short and so is the extended air tube, which means I can't angle the pump at ninety degrees and pump sideways either. I'm almost pumping parallel to the valve and at a very short distance too. Either the instructions could be better and clearer, or I'm just daft.
