Let me start by saying that, if you have a flat, in the middle of nowhere, any hand pump is better than having none. But not all hand pumps are created equal. For me, how fast a pump inflates a flat tire is the gold standard that any pump, hand or floor, must be judged. I have been using the Lezyne Pressure Drive Hand Pump since it first came out. It was and still is, a great pump, saved me multiple times when I had a flat. Very small but packs a punch. Still its small size is both its selling point and weakness. I primarily ride a road bike, and it normally take me 150 to 200 pumps to decently inflate the tire. But I was happy with this pump, until I finally made the decision to try/upgrade and purchase the Lezyne Micro Floor Drive HPG Pump.
This pump is bigger, but you could use a water bottle cage to mount it with the included mount, and it looks really beautiful. Functionally, it beats my old pump by a mile. Anyone who has used a hand pump knows that it is the actual pumping that is the most tedious part. You need to grip and stabilize the pump barrel hard and simultaneously push the plunger, The Lezyne Micro Floor Drive HPG Pump, is the closest thing to a floor pump that your money can buy. It is more stable, has a longer hose and it is very much faster in inflating a flat tire. I bought the one with a manual gauge attached to the hose, very convenient, but you do not need that really. The cheaper version without a manual or digital gauge, I think is more durable. This is an outstanding pump, and I could not recommend it enough. Get one!!
I purchased this pump from BTD looking for a lightweight floor pump that I could pack for overseas travel with my road bike. I use a Thule Round Trip case for transporting my bike, and between the case, bike, and assorted tools, weight can quickly become a factor in today's world of airline fees and limitations. Rather than somehow try to pack a full size floor pump, the Micro Floor Drive can be easily stowed in the Thule case or a check through duffel with no problem. It takes up little space and weighs next to nothing.
The true benefits are revealed when you arrive at destination. This pump is fully capable of achieving 115-120 PSI without the arduous struggle of a handheld pump. And it does it quick. It has a foot stand and the valve achieves a secure fit that works every time. And while the handle tends to be slightly small, it still works effectively.
You can mount the Micro Floor Drive to your frame (it comes complete with bracket and hardware), but instead I choose to instead carry either a micro hand pump or CO2 when riding. I does however earn a spot in the saddlebag of my city bike.
The Micro Floor Drive is a well built, well crafted and finished piece of equipment and is fully capable. If I had any complaint, it would be that the PSIBAR indications on the gauge are difficult to read. But if you've been riding awhile, then you probably know by feel when your tires are properly filled.
You won't go wrong with this pump.
Great small pump for Presta valves. OK for Schrader valves, but a 90 deg schrader adapter should be provided. I cant use this pump on my carbon fiber covered 16 in wheels on my Greenspeed Aero trike. I bought a $$$$$ Park Tool air inflator with a compact dual head that fits the access hole in my wheel covers.
Best on-bike pump I have ever owned but it is not perfect. Gets borrowed a lot.
1. Screw in for presta (or reverse for schrader) valves - no worries about gaskets.
2. Light weight
3. Readable air gauge
1. The tiny rubber top gasket (where pump handle goes into body) wore out very quickly, fixed with white plumbers teflon tape.
2. Air gauge gets stuck and needs occasional tapping
3. The pump holder is poorly designed- I put duck tape on pump body where it sits between the prongs, that stops the pump from slipping down. I also place protective velcro wraps on the bike to prevent rubbing and noise.
unless you really want the high psi, there are cheaper pumps of the same quality, but few pumps in general look as nice as this one. I'd give full 5-5 quality and value if the handle were a bit wider or had a fold out extension.
As with most Lezyne products this is solid, well made and functional. I bought it to throw in my bike box for travel. It is not something I would want on a ride, nor is it a replacement for a shop floor pump. But it is good for filling up after reassembly on your next trip.
Needed a packable pump for my cross country ride. Have used this pump several times now on the side of the road fixing flats. Very durable and easy to use. Easily gets my tires up to 90 psi. The gauge is OK too
A little large to carry with you in a pocket but luckily it comes with a frame mounted holder. It really works great though. The handle looks a little awkward but it's really easy on the hands. Pumping over 80 psi gets hard but this pump really works great. It's really a great pump for traveling. This is also sold without a gauge... The one I bought has a gauge and it's easy to read and works really well. Overall a great pump at a great price when it's on sale at Bike Tires Direct.
It feels well made. It's light,pumps to hp, and fits in trunk bag. The cons are that the handle is a little small, and the gauge is jumpy. I'm still partial to a good frame pump but on many bikes that's not possible any more. I like the flexible hose and if it had a foldable handle that was a little wider I would give it five stars.
I use this pump not only as my back-up pump but also as my main pump. With the exception of handling a pump so small, pumping with it to high pressures is just about as easy as with a full size pump. The quality and features are great. Considering all that, the price is totally worth it.
The only flaw is that the gauge indicator doesn't move smoothly, like it'll freezes at 4 Bars and then jump to 6. This could be happening just because it's new and hasn't smoothed out through wear yet. Also, the markings on the gauge scratch off a little too easily.
I had 2 high-end pumps that eventually wore out. No replacement parts and was forced to find something better. This pump fit my needs - reliable with hope that it lasts longer than my others. It was more expensive than most, but way better than the plastic others are made of.
We recently spent 8 days riding in the French Alps and bought the pump for the trip. I am pleased at the performance of the pump it's ability to get to 120 psi. The built in pressure guage is easy to read and I found it to be very accurate. The pump is light and fit in the sleeve of a small race day rucksack.
I have no complaints, the pump performed perfectly.
I have added it to my race day duffel, and now leave the large pump at home.
I use it for a velomobile ( a recumbent bike that uses a monoque carbon fiber frame). I bought this because of the inline gauge but it's pretty small and hard to read at the angle I have to fill it at which is difficult but it still gets the job done. I bought also because of the elbow it comes with that makes it easier to get to the valve which is difficult to do because of the body being so low that makes it difficult to fill and see the gauge but is the best one I found and was as good as the Topeak. Road Morph w/gauge. I still like it and it is better than most mini pumps I have tried and because it does't have a lever to secure it in place that gives me more room to maneuver the head around more from different angles, you just push it on and that's it. It pops off once in a while at higher pressures but I am able to hold it in place most of the time.
This is really an amazing pump. I bought this pump to take on a European cycling tour since travel weight was key. I was surprised by how well it worked and how light it is. The pump head screws onto the valve so you don't risk damaging the valve when you pull it off. It's got a small chamber so takes a lot of strokes, but it easily pumps up to 110-120psi without a lot of strain and the inline gauge is easy to read. I normally carry a CO2 inflator, but this pump is so light and easy to use that I just mounted it on the bike.
Really wanted to love this and haven't given up yet, but so far, I've been unable to thread the pump head without fully deflating tire. I get it pumped back up, but I can't imagine that's how it's supposed to work.
While this is a great idea on paper, in reality it is a poor design. As a mini-pump, it's difficult to handle compared to other mini-pumps, mainly because of it's size and configuration. As a floor pump it's a disaster. It also doesn't hang well on the bike frame compared to true mini-pumps. I have a smaller Lezyne mini-pump and it's much less expensive and easier to use than this one.
Brought this pump on a European cycle trip for topping up tire pressure. Never bothered to buy CO2 cartridges since it was light enough to carry for emergency flat repairs. Pressure gauge seemed accurate enough to avoid overunder inflation.
This pump is one of the best purchases I have ever made. Works flawlessly and fits into a back pocket. It is so light that I take it with me in my back pocket on every ride.
