Small & Fast w/some flaws Review by Monty
This is one of the smallest and fastest pumps on the market (and cheapest) but as many have said in reviews, the switch is defective and the wires to the motor can become disconnected quite easily. I returned my first pump and received another with exactly the same problem with the switch. You have to bend the wires around the switch to get the pump to energize. I have decided that it will cost me the same to buy a more robust switch at Lowe's than to return the pump via UPS. There was another fellow who recommended that you dip some of the motor connections in vinyl coat to protect the connections from shorting out on the frame (sparks) and to use some locktite on other screws which could back themselves out. I will do all of these things as well. Most of the folks on my last ride liked the size and efficiency (quick air-up's) of this pump than the bigger, more expensive ones they were carrying.

Great Things in small packages Review by HookedonHarley
I was a little dubious of this compressor after reading all the reviews talking of switches, open wires, and stuff breaking. But I could not find anything comparable, so decided to give it a try. I am pleasantly surprised. Yep, it has a few weak points, but it comes with a very usable storage bag, and, with a little care, this compressor works very nicely. If you are concerned about the switch and wire issues, they can be easily remedied, and I believe the compressor itself is worth the investment. (Posted on 7/16/14)
Size does matter Review by Mark
Small package in this case is a good thing. Has the power to fill, packs down small. The in-line cord switch is a little hinkey - takes a few times to get it to close the circuit. (Posted on 7/8/14)
Better than expected Review by Cathleen
Gave it to my husband for his birthday. He has used it twice and is surprised at how fast it will pump up a flat tire. From zero to forty-seven pounds in just a few minutes. He doesn't like the exposed wires though. He fears they will be vulnerable to breakage floating around in a saddlebag. (Posted on 4/30/14)
not a good choice Review by Darren
I thought this would be nice because it is the smallest of the options and less expensive. The tab that locks the nozzle to the valve stem broke completely off the very first time I used it. Now I am out of country and finding this bit is impossible. Go with the Cycle Pump. I have had one for years ant it still works. (Posted on 4/28/14)
It Works Review by Trundlebike
Lost my first one to a thief, had to have another. Functional, durable, and has a great mechanical presence. Put loctite on all the screws and replace the switch if you must, but this device is a keeper. (Posted on 4/11/14)
Works but with problems Review by Jerry
As others have stated the switch is terrible. I have had mine about 5 years. First time I used it (for practice) it went OK except extra practice getting the hose to clamp on deep enough to let air in. Next time the switch did not work. I had to take it apart and reconnect it. A couple of more times all OK just had to be careful seating the hose clamp and taking it off. The last time It aired up the tire but not to full pressure but the plastic gear cover came off, screws fell out. I am shopping for a better one. (Posted on 4/5/14)
Replace the Switch Review by Dean
As it has been said numerous times; the switch is junk. Save yourself a potential crappy day and replace it right off. I've used mine a couple of times to repair tubeless flats and it works pretty well. (Posted on 3/12/14)
Mini with an M Review by Dave
Stores perfect under the tail section compartment of my R1200RT. Fabricated a couple of additional wire harnesses to work with the BMW power outlet and clips direct off a battery. Always remove the pump after washing the bike or a trip and test a couple time a year. (Posted on 12/2/13)
It's The Switch..... Review by Mike
The pump is powerful, fast, connects to the SAE plug on my Tiger, and is relatively compact, however like Franken Beemer and Woody, I found the switch to be...well, horrible. Last week I was all alone ten miles north of Mann Lake OR (the least populated area in the lower 48). I needed to "air up" after riding 42 miles of gravel, and the switch would only work if I pulled on the wires with one hand. Try airing a tire with one hand sometime. Astonishingly, my friend Bill from Maine experienced the same thing with the same model pump the foillowing day. A great pump and motor, but install a better switch when transiting the "Empty Places". (Posted on 9/12/13)

Mini Compressor

This Mini Compressor surprised us. I was afraid that after a few years of bouncing around inside a saddle bag or pack this might not work when needed. I was wrong. (After once experiencing a flat in a fairly remote place I found both long-carried innertube-filling pumps -- an old Enginair hose kit and a 'backup' bicycle tire pump -- had failed. Those simple tools had both been damaged by me not packing them away carefully enough.) In contrast the little Mini Compressor has been working for our customers when its been most needed. Who knew that it would turn out to be so reliable?
