Lezyne pump

Postby mytrot » Mon Jan 11, 2010 10:46 pm

Received a Lezyne Pressure Drive S pump for Christmas. Could not get near 100 PSI when I tested at home standing up. Closer to 75. Can't imagine on the side of the road with sweaty hands.

Anyone else try one of these? Am I just not putting in the effort?

Currentyly carrying a Road Morph. Lots bigger but has a guage and easy to hit 90-100.

Thanks,

Ed

Hard to beat the Road Morph. I actually blew a tube using mine.

Do not rely on the gauge. On mine the gauge is so far off it useless.

Thanks for the heads up on the guage. I will check it and see how mine is doing.

I got this small (it could double as a toilet paper spindle) Lezyne pump about a year ago to replace this big old Roadmorph I hauled around for years; the Lezyne does not have a gauge and I have never had to use it . I lent it to a guy on a ride last fall and watched him demo it- seemed to work just fine.

In the modern age of CO2 cartridges I see no reason to have a pump on the bike. Just the ease of pulling a trigger and in 10 seconds having your tire pumped up and ready to go is worth it.

Depends on the tires.
For narrow (22-25mm)high pressure tires, mini pumps require too much
work for me. I like my Blackburn CF frame pump with a fold out
handle to get to 100+ p.s.i.

On my mountain bike I carry a mini. It takes a few strokes to
get the volume but I don't have to work as hard to reach 35 p.s.i.

I don't like the disposable CO2 just because they are disposable.
Maybe if I was racing and couldn't take the time.
