Looking for a conventional track pump to get tyres up to 120psi, of the track pump/stand type but which is short in length to fit into a suitcase. My large Joe Blow is too long for the hard case suitcase and I certainly wont want it inside the bike box.

Any thoughts or recommendations ?

I got one of these for travel/ transition use.
It gets the job done in a track pump like way, but the handle is small
And painful on the hands at high pressures.

I've got the Road Morph & think it's great. I don't have the one with the pressure guage as I have a seperate one......& thought it would be something else to go wrong.

There doesn't seem to be much between the Lezyne & Topeak, but - as noted - the Lezyne is shiny.

I got a road morph in 2006 with the gauge and it was great for about 5years, now the gauge has become "sticky", it will sit at say 90psi as you pile on the pressure then suddenly jump to 100psi, then same do the same again jumping to 110psi, meaning that getting an accurate pressure isn't easy. Still a great little pump and the gauge still gives you a rough idea.
