Overview
The Serfas TCPG is hand-down our favorite floor pump to travel with. Lightweight, short, and durable, it even fits in luggage! Its handles are extremely comfortable and its seals are consistent. Its also quite affordable for what it offers, making it our Best Buy pick for floor pumps.

OutdoorGearLab Editors' Hands-on Review

The TCPG is our little pump that could! Much shorter than the other pumps in the group, and among the lightest, it's no surprise that it scores a perfect 10 for portability. It was so easy to throw it in cars, pack it in luggage….we even stuffed it into a backpack and rode a bike without a problem! It is durable as well, as a good travel pump needs to be. Like the Serfas FP-200, it has a single head to fit both presta and schrader valves, which is convenient and only adds to the ease of use you'll have with this basic pump. The handles are among the most comfortable we tried. It also has a secure hose attachment for storage of the ball and accessory inflators it comes with, similar to the Serfas FP-200.

Unfortunately, unlike the Serfas FP-200 or the Topeak Joe Blow Sport 2, the small gauge of the TCPG is not as easy to read. Also, mainly because of its size and its tapered sides, the base of this pump is not as stable as the larger, better-shaped bases, such as those of the Lezyne pumps or the Blackburn Air Tower 2.
