    I have gone to your website to order, but can't find it. I know I am missing something simple, please help.

    This thing is tiny. Whole "kit" is half the size of the previous version. The actual pump is smaller than I expected. The original pump is going in my Ridgeline or maybe my father. I dropped it into the bottom of my Aerostich tank pannier and there it will wait and hopefully never need to be used.

    Don't hope that! They are best used on other people's bikes for hero points. Also great for airing up after an off-road section.

    Ride Safe!

    Let's rephrase it as I hope I never have to use it in vain or in anger. That better?

    Got mine today! Really tiny and looks to be very well designed. I haven't tested the gauge yet but how well do you think it compares to a Milton or similar pencil style gauge?

    The gauges are pretty decent. They consistently test within 2% of the reference gauge. Stainless barrel, high strength plastic parts.

    Got mine today and I have to say I'm really disappoint.... just kidding. This is awesome. Besides the size, I think some of the coolest features are the little things (pun intended?).

    I didn't remember seeing anything about the SAE connector is on the device itself. Not with an extension cable, but actually has the SAE connector flush mounted in the device. No propriety cables or anything like that. Even though it does come with any type of cable needed (SAE extension, clips, battery rings, and cig/bmw), since I already have an SAE connector to my battery thats fused high enough, I dont need to carry around any of those. More space savings!! I'll still carry around the extension to reach the front tire and in case I need to pump up someone else, but thats so much easier having it not part of the device, and having a common connection type.

    The other thing I do like a lot is the screw on valve connector. Too many pumps just have one of those push lever type to hold the tube on. I know that when I attach the tube that its going to have a good seal. Very awesome.

    The LED, while it has very limited usefulness, I see that if you are trying to do it in pitch black without any other light, it would help considerably. I'm still not going to drop a real light for it, but a lot better than doing it in the dark. I did think it would've been nice to always have the LED on if it has power, as currently it only lights if the switch is on.

    Pumped up a nearly flat tire just as good as the other pumps I have (didn't time it or anything), and having it the profile it is, its easily replacing the current pump I have on the bike.

    Thanks folks! I appreciate the kind words. Always looking for feedback on the pumps from new users and fresh eyes.

    WRT the LED work light, it is actually quite bright for its size. Give it a try in very low light and you will see... :-) Didn't really envision it for other lighting tasks...just because flats happen in the dark too.

    I love the screw on air connectors too. Very low air loss, easy on and off, especially between the brake rotors.

    Pretty psyched to have this one on the market.
