I use a pocket rocket as its seems about the right balance between price, sizeand usability - no hose though I personally dont think the lezyne gives any advantage over anotherpumpand can un...

Re: Gravel porn

My gravel bike is no faster than my MTB over 4 hour rides locally - its faster up and slower down
That is not why I ride off road but its why i only commute on it.
YMMV
