Topeak makes so many models, I had to look at mine to remind myself what
it's called; it's the "Morph Turbo Master Blaster" with gauge. Older
models had a gauge in a little transparent tube in line with the hose --
a bit awkward. This model has a round gauge near the top of the pump
body; the gauge folds up to the body when not in use. I like the
constantly moving design that Topeak does; it's not just foolish change
but actually develops a better product as they go.
Threading the pump head onto the valve doesn't sound that good to me. I
think there are some presta valves that have no threading on them,
aren't there? And one of the oldest, best pump-heads you can find has no
threading or tightening mech of any kind, so clearly threading on isn't
Anyhow, I'm not arguing this is better than the Lezyne, which I haven't
even seen; just that it's a good product from a company that turns out a
lot of affordable, well designed stuff and I think is worth considering.
I found it a bit of a pain attaching it to the Bike Friday (PRP), but
