About Manual Pumps
Mini pumps provide neat solutions to inflating your bicycle tyres, they often come with clips to attach them to your frame or are small enough to fit in your saddle bag or jersey pocket. Most will comfortably inflate to over 70psi, while some of the higher end pumps can reach over 140psi, making them suitable for both mtb and road use.

Magazine reviews for Topeak Pocket Rocket Pump
Review from 220 Triathlon
This is a true miniature model of the full-sized Road Master Blaster frame-pump, right down to the little tube notches at either end, it's certainly a cute idea, and at just over 100g and 22.5cm it should stow away unobtrusively. The low profile bottle cage clip is secure, with a rubber pullover strap for security and a speedier release than Velcro strapping. The stroke is clunky but the handle's comfortable, as long as you avoid the end scoops.
It tops out at 100psi after 240 strokes, which didn't tax my arms too much. You could probably get there if you slow down a bit, as agitated pumping tended to push air out of the head. Unlike most here, it's probably capable of hitting the claimed 160psi without hiring a gorilla. And, at only £12.99, you should have plenty of change left over for the zoo.
Well-priced, compact, minimal strength required.

It took me ages to work that out first time I used it on shrader valve!
2. Tap the back of the pump so that the black adapter falls out.
3. Separate the two parts of the adapter.
4. Place the small cross shaped end part of the adapter into the smaller hole of the other part of the adapter.
5. Put the adapter back into the pump and screw the light grey cap back on.
How long does this take to inflate to a decent road pressure, say about 100 psi? have used it before but it takes ages to get to any kind of pressure and the tyre rolls all over the place
60-70psi in about 2-3 minutes of pumping.
In relation to the tyre rolling around, I found laying the wheel flat on the ground and holding the head of the pump and the valve firmly against the ground made it a lot easier to control the process. I could then just concentrate on pushing the handle in and out without all of the sideways motion..
i have never found one of these this size to be as good as pumps we have at home .
i was using a standard sized pump on my road bike which rattled on the road's which is why i changed it for this one.
i try and lay the wheels down flat if possible failing that i have managed to leave the wheels in and just remove as much tube as possible and repair / inflate with bike upside down.
I'm not sure any bike tyres should be pumped to 160Psi (at least none that I have ever come across.)
The only other thing you can really do with it is fit it to your bike which you've already got the instructions for...

They appear to have heads made of different material and the DX is slightly lighter.
Would love to fit it to my new bike.
