Topeak Road Morph G Bike Pump with Gauge (Sports)
Online Cycling Store Your no 1 Customer Review Site – Every dedicated cyclist needs a good portable pump for his or her training rides. However, many on-the-go pumps are somewhat clunky and not all that easy to use. Enter the Topeak Road Morph G, which packs floor pump efficiency and ease of use into a compact, portable design you can bring along for the ride.
The Road Morph G boasts a clever foldout footpad that stabilizes the pump against the ground rather than your hand, creating a comfortable, efficient pumping motion. Plus, the pump’s flexible air hose makes it easy to work with awkward or tight valve placements while also helping prevent valve stem damage. Other features include an extra-long barrel, an inline gauge, a secure mounting bracket, a Presta/Schrader head, and a plastic thumb lock. The Road Morph G measures 2.2 by 13.8 by 1.1 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 0.49 pounds.

Some Topeak Road Bike Pump Customer Reviews:
great design, easy to get to 100+ psi, – The key feature of this pump is that the pump head is connected to the main pump by a short section of rubber tubing. This lets you put the end of the pump on the ground after locking the head onto the tube valve. Then, you can use your body weight to do the pumping as with a floor pump, which is nice if you’ve got skimpy arms like me and need road tire pressure (100+ psi). A short, plastic foot swings down so you can use your foot to keep the bottom end of the pump from slipping as you pump. I’m a bit worried that this foot or its hinge will break, so I try to be careful not to stress it when I’m pumping on pavement, but it’s held up fine after over a dozen uses. Finally, while the gauge doesn’t seem to be super precise, it’s definitely good enough to be confident that you’ve got the right amount of pressure ’til you get home to your floor pump. As a year-round, carless commuter, I’m happy I found this reliable, well-designed pump and have recommended it enthusiastically to other cycle-commuters.
Like two pumps in one…or one pump that does two things.. – I considered tossing out my floor pump once I started using this frame pump. The best things: a pressure gauge on the valve and a little flap that you can step on to keep the pump steady. You need this pump if you’re into changing tires.
Great Pump, HIGHLY recommended, although the little fold out foot pedal is utterly useless – I own a Specialized Allez full-Ultegra road bike and a Trek 6000 full-Deore Mountain bike and i use this for both.
Pumping up my road tires (130 psi) was surprisingly easy compared to other pumps (and I’ve had many), but it is still 130 psi and you will have to put some body weight into it. I tried using the fold out foot pedal, but it rotates 180 degrees and is therefore pretty useless when your exerting so much pressure on the pump. But i found that kneeling down, holding the pump upright against the floor and just pumping downwards worked remarkably well. There really is no need for the foot pedal. The hose that attaches to your tire valve is extendable, so you have plenty of room to work. Pumping up my MTB tires was cake. The gauge is absolutely essential, once you have it you wonder how you lived without it.
The bracket mounts very easily onto the bike and the pump clips into place on the bracket and there is an extra strap around the pump for added security. If you have multiple bikes I highly recommend getting a few more brackets and just switching the pump around between bikes.
This is probably the best frame pump on the market, considering its small, has a gauge, works for both schraeder and presta, and has an extendable hose. The price is also awesome. It works really well and i HIGHLY recommend it.
Useful road pump,- I’ve been riding for five years. I ride approximately a hundred-twenty miles a week. I bought a frame pump at first. It didn’t have a hose and I would break the valve stem out. This “Topeak Road Morph” pump is my second. I have one on each of my bikes. I love the built-in gauge. The gauge is very accurate, as I checked it against a regular gauge. The only draw back to the pump is that the twist lock handle rattled. I got some teflon tape and went around the locking groove and no more rattle. I have been using this pump for about a year now, and I use it exclusively to keep the air up to a hundred-twenty psi in my tires. I would recommend this pump to others.
