CCM Bike Frame Pump with Gauge
I found this product to be ideal. Having the needles tucked into the handle is a brilliant idea.
I used the pump on my bicycles tires and inflated them in no time.
Well worth the purchase price.

It's on ok pump but there are better options.
So I bought this pump a long while back and it's only an emergency pump at best for bikes. Also forget about using it for high psi road tires. The whole thing is pretty much plastic(except gauge and needle) and takes forever to get up to a ride-able psi for MTB tires. Also you're arm will tire quickly because of lack of support while pumping unlike a floor pump where you have the floor or ground to push against. Last point is that the tube for the valve lock is pretty short and it can be easy to cut through valves if not careful. I have since gone to another brand of portable pump(which canadian tire doesn't sell) which I can use like a mini floor pump and makes pumping up my tires a breeze.

Great little pump
What's great about this pump is that it's compact, has a little built-in gauge, and fit my bike's (Schroeder) valve like a glove with no problems (unlike the Supercycle minipump I returned before purchasing this one). I was surprised how quickly it filled up my almost flat tire, considering how people usually say minipumps are very slow. The gauge seemed to work nicely (although I don't know how accurate it is). My only two complaints, which is why it doesn't get a 5-star rating, are: 1) It feels a tad flimsy, especially the pump shaft and handle, so not sure how durable it will be 2) It's a one trick pony - no needles to inflate balls etc (but it does fit to both types of bicycle tire valves of course).

Overall I'm giving this pump a mediocre rating. Why? Its not multi-purpose. I wanted a pump that I could use on my kids bikes, then add a pin to it to inflate their soccer and basket balls. However this pump does not have threads to take a needle.
Quality: Its a durable pump. My kids will likely have kids before I need another pump.
Performance: Its good for pumping up tires. I like the added comfort of the pressure guage. However, its a single purpose pump.
Durability. I've dropped it a few times now with no adverse effects.
If you want just a bicycle pump, get this. Otherwise don't touch it!

A decent buy
This is a decent buy it works great its sort of hard to pull the lever im not happy that the pump shaft is plastic but it hasent broken yet the pressure gauge is pointless it does not work the reading is WAY off! overall as an emergancy pump its great but for an everyday pump i wouldnt go for this one

What can I say?
This pump is well built...with a failed design. The material quality is undeniable and the structural durability is obvious. On the other hand, you want a pump to PUMP. The thumb-lock is more like a hand-lock: it takes ever so much effort to lift it! And when you do that you might just brake that little Presta locknut hence rendering your tube useless. That's what happened to me. On the Schrader valve it takes so long time to inflate it to just 10 psi...Don't buy it.

This was a good find. It has a gauge too so that u know if you have the right pressure for your tires.

Great air pump
This pump is great and it even comes with a gauge. One of its best features is that the pins are stored in the handle so that you cannot lose them!

better than I expected
It actually has a very precise pressure guage to tell you the PSI. Very light, small and easy to use. Doesn't quite go on my Schwinn bike correctly but I guess I shouldn't have expected that.

A good, affordable pump
I bought this pump for $10 (on sale), and so far it seems durable and effective enough for my purposes. It also comes with adapters to pump other things like exercise balls (that's what I did anyway).
