|Trundlebike||Had a little trouble with the switch and some stuff vibrated loose, but the basic pump was no problem. Car tires took a while. Lost it to a thief. I miss it.|

I also like the old red Maeda with the reservoir and pressure gauge.
For everyday use I use a Hurricane Team because the gauge is up by the handle and I can read it ;^).
A nice old Big Boy lives in the truck.
There are too many pumps at my house.

I used my mini manual pump today. (Picked up a nail.) I use an aluminum & plastic manual mini pump that Aerostich sells -- it locks onto the schraeder valve very well. I have other mini Mt. bike pumps on other bikes.
I recently took a trip with 3 1/2 sets of tires and 2 flats. For one change I handed a shop the wheels but for 2 1/2 sets I changed the tires myself and used the mini Mt-Bike pump.
Had I relied on CO2 cartridges I would have wanted a large supply with me. There were rough roads and some shale-covered road (although I got off and looked at the shale and most of it is crumbled down to be no threat). I could certainly have restocked on cartridges when I bought tires, but the little pump just works.
My pump choice on the road is probably related to my pump choice at home: bicycle floor pump by Silca .

Good tip Tom, I carry a "Slime" pump and will follow your advice. Also a dab of dielectric grease on the electrical bits if access is possible.
