How to switch the default configuration from a Presta valve to a Shrader valve on the top peak Pocket Rocket mini pump.
Here are a few key facts about this pump:
1. Is it light? It weighs only about 5 oz, so it does not add much weigh at all. It comes with a bracket that mounts to the bike frame under the bottle cage, and the pump can be secured onto the bracket without it coming loose during even a bumpy ride (see picture).
2;. Is it sturdy? The construction of the pump seems to be solid. The shaft is the piece that is under the greatest pressure when you push. On this pump, the shaft is quite sturdy -- it did not flex or bend at all when pressure was applied. The diameter is just a little over 5/16 inch, but it seems to be made out of solid metal.
3. Does this fit both Presta and Schader valves? The pump comes in a configuration ready for a presta valve (which you'll find on most road bikes). Similar to most hand pumps, you push the pump onto the opened valve and lift the lever on the other end to lock. On the reviews, there were some confusion about whether this accepts a schrader valve too. The answer is yes, it can accept both. The instructions for how to convert from the presta configuration that the pump comes in to a schrader configuration is on the packaging of the pump (though in only pictorial form). Another reviewer has also posted a video on how to do this. Some reviewers commented on the lack of written instructions. It turns out that for products that are marketed in Europe this happens a lot -- they rely on pictures for instructions instead of words. (For most of my other bike equipment, they come with no written instructions either, so Topeak is not an exception.)
4. How many pumps does it need to inflate a tire? The answer to this depends heavily on what tires you have. Since I have only used this on a 700x25c road tire, I cannot speak to any other tire size. But about 80 pumps got me from 0 to approximately 60 psi. That may sound like a lot of pumping -- but it wasn't. The shaft is pretty short and the strokes pushed air into the tube fairly efficiently, so going up to 60 psi took very little effort. 60 psi is good enough to ride home after a puncture, so for my purpose, this pump more than serves the purpose, and I am quite happy with it. However, this would not be the pump of choice to get the tire up to the recommended 90+ psi normal pressure -- for that, you'll need a floor pump.
Finally, I paid for this purchase with my own money and was not compensated in any way for this review. Whenever I find a good product I give it an honest review as a service to the Amazon community. Thorough reviews help me make informed buying decisions, and I hope this one helps yours too.
General observations: this pump is very well constructed with mostly metal components, even the flip lever is made of metal. Very compact, fits right under the bottle cage. Right out of the box,it comes ready for duty on the narrow Presta tires. To use on schrader (i.e. Fat tires) you need to follow the simple diagram on the package to reverse the valve head components.
To use the pump, you give the handle a slight turn clockwise to unlock it. Push the head firmly down on the valve ( it helps to have a thumb on the bottom of the tire bracing the tire valve for support), then flip the lever UP and begin pumping. After done pumping, flip lever DOWN and pull the head off the tire valve ( it does require a GOOD tug to release.)
Road Bike: On my 700 x 25C tire bike, it worked pretty well. I keep these tires pumped to about 100-110 psi. With the tire deflated to 0 psi, it took me about 4 minutes to pump to about 80 psi. I would give it 5 stars here.
Mountain Bike: on my 27" x 2.00" tire bike, I usually like to keep these pumped to 50-55 psi. With the tire deflated to 0 psi, it took me about 10 minutes to pump to just barely 40 psi. These tires require more volume of air, and this pump is just barely adequate for the job here. Good enough to keep you rolling again after some effort. Three stars here..
Since the spare pumps on both my bikes gave out recently, I ordered 2 of these: Kept one for the Road bike, send the other one back.
I gave this pump a two star despite the bad design that is shared by many frame mounted mini pumps, which can easily bend a Presta valve. The bottom line is that such a bend does not seem to cause any air leak. And it might be possible for some one who is skilled to avoid such bending problem. If so, it would be nice to have some instructions on the package of the product that illustrates the correct way of using it.

The pump I have just received from Amazon is nowhere near the same quality and i would say that it is a low quality Chinese reproduction.
The original pump can be taken to peices and serviced and this one is glued together, another sign that it is fake.
I will be returning this item ASAP as it not an item of quality
Para hacer el cambio entre los tipos de válvulas, desenroscar la tapa gris, dentro hay 2 piezas negras que hay que sacar igualmente, separarlas, voltear una e insertarla en la que tiene forma cilíndrica y colocar la tapa de nuevo. Visiten la pagina de este producto en Amazon.com (USA) y podrán ver un video de como hacerlo.
It's a pretty compact unit, but feels very robust. It came with a handy mount and some nice long bolts which goes between the bottle cage and the frame. I've fitted it but I don't tend to use it as I believe that someone will pinch it when I leave my bike outside a shop. The mount feels very secure however and I imagine it would be very handy if you were going out with just a puncture kit in a saddlebag for instance, but I always have a rucksack so I don't really need it, nice extra though.
The pump feels like it will last a long time, I'll update my review with any developments.
UPDATE: Still going strong a year later.
The mount has straps so it's virtually impossible for it to fall. The only downside is that it requires some effort to pump efficiently, as with any portable bike pump.
You will probably find that if you're looking to use this as your main pump, it gets a little weak when it gets towards the recommended "sweet spot" PSI of the majority of bicycle inner tubes. Not to worry: I deflated and re-inflated both my inner tubes and pumped them up with this pump alone, just to see how well it did. It worked fine: it brought the tires up to a nice, firm level in about 8 minutes (including fiddling around with dust caps) and I didn't need to reflate again for about 15 miles.
At the price point, there's not much to "Hmm" and "Ah" about: it's simple, small, convenient and reliable.
Yes, it is small and compact, mounts perfectly to your bike and doesn't add much weight.
No, it is awful at inflating your tires, you will take all day to get your tires anywhere near a decent running pressure.
don't waste your money
Today was the first time I've had to use it, 30km from home I realised that I had a slow puncture, I really couldn't be bothered to change inner tubes so I got the pump out for its first use.
What a great little pump! I had to use it a total of 4 times on the way home and each time it pumped up to the desired pressure quickly which is very impressive for a small pump. I have no doubt that if I had swapped tubes it would have coped with that just as well.
