Those travellers going more-or-less self-supported may be willing to carry something a bit larger than the standard mountable (pocketable) pumps. We’ve used several generations of the Topeak Road Morph and love the built-in gauge. We also appreciate the foot pad and T-handle. Both the pad and handle fold-out but can feel a bit small or may need a little bit extra padding or support. Even though the initial fill is tedious the Morph is a champ ! For an “on-the-bike” option, we think this is the best way to go for touring. The Morph is also the best choice if you’re only bringing a single pump.
But we still want MORE! This past summer in France, we decided to purchase a floor pump in Paris to stash in our hotel rooms in the Alps.
