Overview
Of the frame pumps we tested, the Peakini II is the only one designed specifically for lower-volume tires, such as mountain bikes or beach cruisers. And it does its task beautifully. Lightweight, easy to use, and not bad looking, the Peakini will inflate tires up to 90 psi relatively quickly, making it an overall good investment.

OutdoorGearLab Editors' Hands-on Review

The Topeak Peakini II was the only frame pump we tested specifically for lower pressure tires, such as on mountain bikes and cruisers. That said, we have to be a bit careful when comparing directly across the board to the other pumps, but we are happy to say that even though it is next to impossible (if not impossible) to pump at high pressure, the Peakini II still placed 4th. While it isn’t the most versatile pump for different types of bikes, the Peakini II is lightweight, has a simple design with a comfortable t-handle, and has good, high volume air movement. It scored very well in our pumping speed category, thanks to a nice big barrel. The design is simple and the handle comfortable, making it easy to use.

Unfortunately, the Peakini II was not quite as durable as we would like a mountain bike pump to be, with the nozzle cap falling out a lot, allowing mud and grit from rides to collect in the nozzle. If you want to use this for particularly muddy, gritty rides, you might want to remove it from the bracket and stick it in your jersey or bag. If the terrain is dry, this shouldn't be much of a problem.
