I had the same problem with this pump, the bottom part detached itself when mounted on the bike. It was about 6 months old and was better than those my fellow riders had for inflating tubes after a puncture but Its a shame i didnt realise it was under warranty and i threw it into the bin.
I've had this pump for a while now and it has helped me out on a number of occasions. However, on Saturday it fell apart! I looked down during my ride and half of it (the plunger bit that moves in and out of the chamber) was gone - lost on the roadside somewhere. Absolutely no use any more!
Sorry to hear that the pump has fallen apart, I myself have used this pump for the last 3 years and found it excellent when needed, you are still covered under warranty if you have your proof of purchase (within 2 years). If you do, please return it to your local store for a refund/exchange.

Recommended by staff at Stockport this pump is a little rocket!
This is a nice little telescopic pump, when it works. However, mounted one way - and regardless of how tight - the pump slides down the mount an the handle extends out; only to be noticed when it catches on the cranks (potentially unsafe). Mounted the other way, the thread attaching the telescopic shaft to the main housing seems to have worked loose. Thus, instead of working its way down the end just dropped off somewhere on my ride. I now have half a pump. This will be fine if you intend to keep it in a (deepish) jersey pocket or in a pannier, I would not advise buying it if you intend to munt it to your frame, though. UPDATE: Dear Rob, Thank you for your kind attention. I had already been in contact with Zéfal who kindly replaced the unit out themselves. I have been very pleased with the customer service of both Zéfal and Decathlon and I would be happy for the information in this email to be used to update my original review. I would also be happy to have the star rating on that review upgraded by one point. Best Regards, James
Sorry to hear that the product came apart while mounted to the bike. If you have the remaining half of the pump left and a receipt/decathlon card, take the product back to your local store and ask for a exchange or refund. There will be no problems in doing so.

Had this pump for around 4 months now and it has been used a few times. Does what it should and gets sufficient air back into the tyre to get you out of trouble. The disappointing part is the bracket that holds the pump, it has now broken despite not being abused so I have to resort to keeping the pump in a jersey pocket, something I wanted to avoid as it become uncomfortable. Happy with the pump but Zefal need to design a more robust bracket that doesn't break as easily.
Like the previous review, I also found that this pump rattles, I resorted to putting some gaffer tape around the pump to better hold it in place, unsightly but it works now and doesn't slip. Previously the pump slid down in the holder and has left a mark on my carbon frame (annoyed). Also, if you don't put it in the right way up the handle slides down. Only used it once, worked well. For a respected brand this product hasn't been properly trialed before being released on the market (IMO)
I agree with you that the attachment for this pump is not good enough. It has already been forwarded to Zefal and they are aware of such feedback. The pump itself is fine and works as expected.
You are most welcome to return the pump to us if you wish.

Bought this in Decathalon and it Rattles a lot when on the bike no matter how you put it in holder (in 3 or 4 spins had to take it off an put in pocket, velcro not tight enough on the pump letting it slide all other the place. The pump itself in the non extended position extends itself causing more rattles... Don't know how good it is to pump but if its annoying on the bike then there isn't any point having it...
Overall this is an effective mini pump for a road bike and it can get you back up to 100psi to get you home but I'm sorry to read that the bracket is not as good as is should be. Not ideal to have to carry it in your pocket.
I have forwarded your comments on to the buyer at b'Twin to raise this issue with Zefal directly.
If you are not happy with the product you are welcome to return it to us.

Good looking little pump, small, but long telescopic when extended, hence the high pressure, not easy to make 100PSI for road tyres but manageable, unlike other portable pumps, if it was a bit cheaper it would be perfect
Got one of these while away in France, very nice pump tried it once and worked ok. But had same problem as some other reviewers in that mounted one way it would extend by itself and then changed around to find only half a pump when got home, it unscrewed itself and fell apart while on cycle. Had only 2 weeks, rather a bit disappointing for a new pump. If you get one don't frame mount !!"!!!!

Sehr gute Pumpe. Einziges Manko ist die Befestigung für den Rahmen. Die Pumpe steht dann seitlich zu weit ab und man kommt beim Treten mit dem Schienbein/Knie dann gegen die Pumpe.
-für schnelle Hilfe unterwegs ist sie gut. Die Befestigung (Schrauben!) ist bes. für den Wettkampfgebrauch unpraktisch. Klett, oder Gummiringe wären besser!
Fijada al cuadro, se va moviendo, mala sujeción. El inflado de las ruedas es correcto

Ya he tenido ocasión de pinchar, y tener que usarla en una ruta MTB, y sin demasiado esfuerzo logre darle a la rueda 3 bares de presión. (Comprobado con el medidor que tengo en casa). Asi que todos los que hablan mal de esta bomba, que se lo hagan mirar, pues yo he probado unas cuantas, y esta esta bastante bien sobre todo por el tamaño que tiene. .
Me extraña muchísimo la cantidad de opiniones negativas a cerca de su capacidad de inflado y solidez. Yo la he usado un monton de veces metiendo tanto grandes volúmenes (ruedas de BTT de hasta 2.2 de balon) como elevadas presiones (la uso incluso para dar presión a horquillas y amortiguadores con la ayuda de un latiguillo) y ni un problema. Ni se me ha roto ni me ha dejado tirado ni pierde aire ni nada de nada. Perfectamente siempre. Para grandes volumenes toca bombear muchas veces pero aparte de eso; cero problemas.
