Blackburn's Frame Pump makes fixing flats easy thanks to the aluminum barrel, fold-out T-handle and universal thumblock head, which together deliver excellent pumping power. Best, the elegant spring-loaded design and rubber ends let you carry it on your bicycle without mounting clips.
Gets very high ratings from reviewers. Pumps tires to a high enough pressure that you can ride home without fear of damaging rim or tire/tube. Used it during a winter ride and it worked well. I have CO2 as backup just in case. Some may prefer the smaller pumps. IMHO, the extra weight pales in comparison to the extra volume and easier pumping than a mini-pump, especially if you are tired from a long, hard ride when you have to change a flat.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
