It's not cheap, but if you can get one get a Topeak Morph...
Once you've tried one, esp. the Topeak Turbo Mountain Morph w/ gauge, everything else sucks. its not cheap but definitely a time-saver and a schraeder valve saver on the trail. it pumps air like a floor pump (it actually folds out into a mini-floor pump)
Want to get a second one but can't seem to find a store that carries this anymore...that sucks
ang gaan nyan...medyo bulky lang compared to other handpumps but its nothing when you compare it to the ease and speed of use. would have to dig up the receipt out of my files for the exact price but think i got it for something between 1-1.5K
its so good i left it in negros for my riding there, and planned to get another one for my riding here...but now i can't find a store that carries it now i'm stuck w/ a zefal that takes forever to pump
btw storm, if you don't have a shock pump yet, specialized has a new pump model that does both tires and shocks (low- and high-pressure settings)...but its even less cheap at 2.5K+....saw it at powerbikes today hehehe. bit heavy but for a good pump, i don't mind carrying the extra weight.
thing is i already have shock pump so i didn't pull my wallet out for that tool

i bought a giyo. P280 at kings. Haven't had the chance to use it yet except for minor test on the pump. Based on my scientific guestimate, it would take me approximately 10 minutes to fill up a tire to its proper PSI. The pump has a built in guage but i dont think its very accurate. It can accept presta and schrader =)
If you're gonna visit Nueva Ecija and want to know a good trail destination, ask me. I don't know sh!t! =)
The Giyo and MOB 2-stage hand pump w/ gauge are the best bang for the buck. I have used them for over 3 yrs both for my road and mtn bikes. It is light weight and very simple to use. My pump goes all the way up to 100 psi. I recommend that you check the grease ( I use silicone oil so that it doesn't "expand" the O-rings) every month or so. Also I suggest that you calibrate the gauge by pumping form a reliable pump, in my case an MOB floor pump and then checking what the hand pump registers.
Giyo/MOB with gauge...can't go wrong for the price and for the number of times you'll be using it never mind if the gauge is not that accurate so long as it gets the job done and get you back home from the trails....SULIT!
