Strength:

looks to be strong enough not to break during a manic pumping sesh, takes a nice photo on the online bike stores.

Weakness:

dirt/grit inside pump chamber 4 hours from trail riding, rather on the large size for a mini pump - too long for veritcal seatpost mount, the carbon fibre is just a veneer - the pump is made of plastic and metal the same as the far cheaper (lighter?) mammoth model, the frame mounting is slack and not retaining relying on a cheapo thin velcro to prevent loss of the pump.

go down to your lbs and do some hands on research before you purchase this pump - as many online bike stores do not accept a slightly used pumps for refund!

it's probably an alright pump if you keep it in your backpack when riding, otherwise when you use it you will pump grit into your tires ...that is if you haven't lost it on the trail already.

Strength:

size, weight, construction, ease of use, works quickly

Weakness:

make sure when you strap it in, the handle side is up... instructions were alittle hard to follow (you have a piece to switch around in the head)

DOH!!! FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!!!! I didnt pay attention and mounted it on a MTB on the sprocket side with the handle facing down and you know what happened next! Now Im getting the chain and a gear replaced (but the pump is fine, go figure lol!)

This little bugger has saved my ass a few times. I noticed in the standard Mammoth review a few complaints regarding the frame mounts; however, they went in the trash as soon as I received the pump. I always ride with a pack containing an extra tube, repair kit, multitool etc., and this pump fits so nicely without hogging a ton of space. Why bother mounting it to the frame anyways?

Honestly, I can't think of anything bad to say about it. One of those things you've got to have, and this one has done me no wrong.
