Tiny hand pumps that fail to pump air have stranded more mountain bikers in the back country than any other breakdown. Innovations Inc. designed the Chubbie Stubbie to go the distance. Its guaranteed for life and is only nine inches long.
Key Features: The Stubbie has a Schrader and presta head that routes air automatically to the valve head port that you select. Just pop the pump head on the valve, flip the aluminum lever and go. A folding handle makes operating the tiny pump easy as pie and a large barrel delivers a lot of volume with every stroke. Construction is aluminum and plastic, and a water bottle mount is included. It weighs 125g with mounting bracket.
MBA Rating: Four stars for the Innovations Chubbie. It cranks out the air and feels like a much larger pump. The Chubbie Stubbie pump sells for $15.99 at your local bike shop. Call (800) 340-1050.
