Hey gang,
FWIW, I tried a Topeak micro tire pump, which is about the size of a permanent felt pen, and was WAY impressed! The guy at the counter was discouraging me from purchasing the pump because he figured my arm would fatigue before the tire would inflate to rideable pressure. I asked if I could try it out on a display bike and he obliged. Within about 1 and a half minutes of EASY pumping, the tire was inflated to 95 lbs! This thing is super light - made of carbon fiber - and is, did I already say, easy to use!!! Unlike the large frame pumps, this one doesn't flop around while trying to pump the tire.
I've been a CO2 guy for a long time now; but no longer! Performance bicyle stores carry this model and they're on sale for $35. Don't take my word for it, check it out for yourselves.
