Yeah, that’s exactly the one my dad used to have way back! Personally I like the little hose, seems to protect the valve a little better from snapping. I’ll have a scrape around fleabay and see what I can come up with.

"Don't even bother, most frame pumps won't get you enough air pressure to do anything other than limp home. Get a couple of C02 cartridges and be done with it."
Stuff and nonsense as my mum would say. A decent frame fit pump is enough to bang tyres up to well over 100psi. How did most of use manage in days gone by when a track pump was an expensive luxury? A mini may struggle a bit (purely as it takes so long) although my little Lezyne is fine to 70+ where I am happy anyway. A frame fit one ie one that fits the frame such as the afore mentioned Zefal is fine and will last decades.
