However, I also couldn't use the bolt holes on the seat tube, as they were also in the wrong location. So I used the included zip ties, which have been holding the bracket just fine. The pump just fits inside the 15" space on the tube.
The pump is able to fill my tires to 100+ psi. The built in gauge is both convenient and essential if you don't have a tire gauge handy.
The flip-out footpad is quite difficult to open with just my fingers. On my Mini Morph, I don't snap it shut, and that works just fine. The footpad works better on a hard surface like concrete or pavement. It's small but functional if you step on the it carefully. So far I haven't needed the footpad. The pump works fine just pushing straight down against the ground or floor.
The head is preloaded with the Presta size fitting. TIP #1: You can screw off the cover and flip the inside piece around to accomodate larger Shrader valve. (Many people don't know how to do this, based on the other reviews. If you don't know how this pump works, ask a bike shop or friend. Don't blame the pump for your ignorance!) It's true that the pump comes with virtually no instructions--presumably it's intended to be sold by a dealer who demonstrates it.
TIP #2: The head fits over the valve stem, and THEN you flip the lever up, so the lever is in line with the stem. Do NOT flip the lever first and then attempt to mount it on the stem.
Pumping effort does get a bit hard when you get close to 100 psi. But I didn't find it overly difficult. The T-handle is adequate, although I found myself banging my index finger against the top of the pump on each downstroke. I had to reposition my hand so I pushed mainly with my palm. This was only for the final, hard strokes.
UPDATE: after several uses, I concede the handle is less than ideal. I have hit my knuckles so many times. Because my road bike requires a much higher tire pressure, it takes more effort to pump than a mountain bike, and I want to squeeze every inch of air into the tire, so I try to do a complete stroke. Hence, the knuckle banging. Still, it does the job quite nicely when you are on the road and have no other option.
I don't plan to mount the pump right now since I have panniers.
You can easily pump to pressures above 60 PSI with this pump, and the pumping experience for me is a lot nicer than the mini pumps I've tried (this doesn't matter much in the garage, but out on the road it can be a game changer). It does weigh a bit more than a mini pump, but if your not racing I don't think the extra weight is really a concern. Also the zip tie mounts are really nice because they allow you to mount the pump on the top tube if you already have water bottle holders on your other tubes. Make sure to either cut off or file away the excess zip ties, otherwise they can scratch your legs while riding!
I also like that having this along with the bike means I can get up to normal road pressure and, with the gauge, knowing I have the right pressure. If I'm meeting up with a group from my club, and have a couple minutes to spare before the ride starts, I can make sure my tires are fully inflated, without having to have my floor pump along. I can leave the floor pump at home in the workshop where it belongs.
I tried mounting it under the top tube at first, but that didn't work so well with my bike carrier, and the zip ties wound up poking me at times while riding. So I took off my 2nd water bottle cage and put the Morph there instead. Now the 2nd water bottle for long rides goes in my bike jersey rear pocket instead. Small tradeoff to have a pump I know I can trust to work quickly and well in time of need, when other riders are waiting for me to fix a flat, or when I'm helping other riders fix theirs.
