I've been riding my old Colnago Master X-Light lately. In which I pack a full length Blackburn CF frame pump. I looked online at Blackburn's website and it looks like they don't make them any longer. I guess now it's either a mini or co2....I have a Lezyne Road Drive Large. I tested it in my garage. In 90 strokes I managed to get up to 70 psi. Getting past 100 psi would probably do me in...

Have you thought about the Zephals? I haven't looked but it is hard to imagine them not making a good pump. A new or lightly used HPX would serve well. I have 3 HPXs and 3 quite old HPs on my 6 bikes. Haven't carried a non-Zephal for 45 years.

Long time Zefal and Blackburn frame pump user myself but also have a Topeak frame pump. Works well and their customer service is great.

Yeah, I'm mulling over a Zefal HPX or a Park PMP 5. I have not considered a Topeak, will look into them. I presume the new Zefal HPX's are the same as the old model (?)...anyone know if the Park's are any good?

I guess frame pumps are on the way out if Blackburn no longer makes them.

Frame pumps just don't fit in carbon monocoque frames. Too bad.

I want a full length frame co2 cartridge.

I have a Blackburn on the tandem. I'm sure there are plenty of on line stores out there that still have them.

I am STILL rocking Silca plastic pumps from eons ago (I have 3) with Campy metal head of course. Why not? It's lighter than Zefal, works better then the Park POS, of course inflates faster than mini-pumps, and fits all 3 of my frames - Ridley, Motobecane Ti, and Soma. I use 1 strap on the Ridley near the headtube as insurance.

Zoot, just my opinion but of the two I'd opt for the HPX. PMP 5 is fine as a functional frame pump but seems heavier than it needs to be and constantly rattles as you ride.
