I've carried another compact pump and CO2 at various times. CO2 can't be transported by plane, and leaves me nervous that a series of flats could leave me stranded. My other compact pump was never very satisfying, and gradually stopped working entirely. This Lezyne pump appears to be very high quality, and feels smooth as silk in operation. I love the hose instead of direct connection. The diameter is larger than my old compact, which adds a little weight and bulk, but pays off with much faster tire fills. I've used it a few times just to test its operation, but never on the road. I can't say I'm looking forward to using it to fix a flat, but I think it will be great to have when the time comes.
What can I say? It gets the job done in a very small and lightweight package. Small enough to easily fit in a back pocket with risk of falling out.
There are two shortcomings. First, the detachable rubber tube can rattle around a bit. This can be noticeable if you use the frame mounting kit. However, I never hear it when I put the pump in a rear jersey pocket.
Second, you have to be careful when using this kind of pump (i.e. one that screws onto inner tubes) with tubes that have removable valve cores. I found myself in a jam out in the middle of nowhere when the pump kept removing the valve core when I was done pumping the tire up. Now i carry a little tool that allows me to really tighten the valve core down before using the pump.
Great lightweight and compact pump. Easy to carry in my jersey pocket. Material and build feels of high quality. Cannot speak to it's longevity or performance since I have not experienced a flat since going tubless (knock on carbon).
Great lightweight pump that stores easily and is a reliable source of air on those rides where you have already used your CO2.
This pump work fine. Unfortunately the velcro piece is so short it will not got around frame of bike. Really? for a 40 dollar hand pump could they have spent another 10 cents and given us more than a 4inch piece of velcro? Did they test the attachment with any road bike to see what would happen? I actually took it to a bike shop to see if I was missing something, but no they could not figure it out either. They ended up selling me a bigger piece of velcro. Ridiculous.
The velcro on these pumps is meant to secure the pump to the bike-mount, which mounts under your bottle cage with the same hardware, which is why it would most likely be too short to wrap around a bike frame.

Without a pressure gauge it is difficult to tell the exact pressure, but from years of squeezing the tire experience, I'd way that this pump can reach at least 110 psi. It is the best compact pump I have ever used. On a recent ride, a friend's Specialized frame pump wouldn't work and he used a CO2 cartridge from another rider. Blew out his tube! I gave him a spare tube and handed him my Lezyne Pressure Drive Hand Pump. He chuckled at its size, but had nothing but praise when he used it. He was amazed at the amount of pressure - he figured it had to be over 100 psi when he stopped.
Bought this pump to replace a frame pump with something that fits in a jersey pocket. It fits the bill on that measure, and I also prefer the flexible hose attachment to the fixed nozzle on my old frame pump. I have a floor pump with pressure gauge for regular maintenance, but the Lezyne hand pump is a perfect addition to my road repair kit.
I havent had to use it on the road yet but it is far better quality than any other compact pumps Ive previously owned.
This is my second Lezyne pump. The first one is on my 'brevet' bike. This one goes on my 'road' bike. It is very well constructed of light materials. And the design works great. No more one shot cartridges for me. I've got reliable inflation anytime.
I love this because it fits easily in my fanny pack for commuting, so I don't need to worry about anyone swiping it off of the bike when I park it during the day. Also, it has a great flexible connector for both types of stems, so I can use it for both of my bikes, and the flexible connector means that I can actually pump with both hands free without having to worry about yanking it off of the stem.
Excellent pump - I really like the flexible connection, it makes pumping up a tire/tube much easier than my previous model, which required one to hold one hand steady - which is not so easy to do.
I'm a fan of these pumps-they're rugged, they last and the design allows you to inflate even if you have a tube with too short a valve stem. It does help to read the directions for the details to maximize their effectiveness.
Great pump, durable, and portable. I throw mine in my backpack, not sure about that little mounting gadget..
This pump,fits my bike. My only issue is it's size. Any larger would not fit my bike. So the issue is my limited space on my bike not the pump. The pump works well. No complaints.
