Just received a Lezyne Road Drive Mini Pump (large) from Wiggle.

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/Lezyne_Road_Drive_Mini_Pump/5360040898/

Brilliiant. The large is relatively light (112g), and works like a dream. None of that trying to grip the rim and business end of a mini-pump with one hand, while attempting to pump with the other. This pump has an old-fashioned flexible hose hidden inside, just like pumps of yesteryear.

Pumping is fast and easy, and I get higher psi than the crappy mini pumps I have tried.

Had to get it from UK, as the Japanese retailers seem to have trouble getting stock.

I got the same one earlier this month also from Wiggle and I agree, this is how a pump should work ! Superb. I also found them at Nicole EuroCycle (Akasaka)....

By my last check Y's have the Lyzene. That's where I got mine a few weeks back.

Got this to replace a hand pump that bent the core in a valve on a replacement tube. Maybe its user error but the pump needs to be replaced. Too bad the Lyzene's aint double action.
