Too good to be true...?

My wee carbon pump is rated upto 160psi (11 bar) but there is no chance of actually achieving that unless you've the arms of Popeye; its the same with all mini pumps they are rated up to a high psi/bar but in actuality you'll achieve a lot less. I can get mine up to 100psi (6.9bar) if I have the time to spare more often on a ride I don't and 60-80psi (4-5.5bar) is more common, it does the get me home job where a track pump is used to get the desired pressures.
