Picture this – you’re making great time cycling to work, when all of a sudden you feel one of your tyres getting flatter and flatter. What can you do? You don’t want to be late, and you can’t ride your bike in the state that it’s in, but you don’t have a portable bike pump with you.
Avoiding eventualities like this is why it’s always handy, no matter why or where you’re cycling, to keep a mini bike pump on you at all times; one that can easily fit in your pocket or bag, or be attached to your bicycle should you suddenly need it.
It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so which mini cycle pump could you consider for no more than £15?
Perfect for road bikes, this Cykeway model is arguably the best mini bike pump on the market at this price.
With this powerful, 116 psi pump, your bike can easily be good as new in less than one minute, without the risk of any air leaking out while pumping, either. You can also switch from ‘Presta’ to ‘Schrader’ modes just by flipping the hose around; there’s no need to reconfigure your pump head.
And at just 19cm long and 89g heavy, it is neither overly noticeable nor will it take up too much space, whether you decide to attach it to your bike frame with its mounting kit, carry in your bag, or slide inside your pocket.
- PUMP FASTER – Inflate your tyre in under one minute – high pressure 116 psi.
- PUMP EASY – Inflate tyres in comfort with our flexible thread-on connector to avoid awkward postures. Keep your valve and your knuckles safe.
- PRESTA-SCHRADER COMPATIBLE – switch in seconds just by flipping the hose around! One hose with both connectors, one on each side.
Another highly compact mini pump, this model from Diyife weighs just 160g and can be attached to your bike frame with the mounting bracket.
Plus, boasting a 120 psi pump, it’s another extremely powerful piece of kit, and can repair much more than just bikes, including footballs and basketballs.
It also comes with a gas needle to inflate the sports balls, a fixed belt and holder to attach the pump on the bike, a rubber binding strap to fix the tube, a puncture repair kit and user manual.
