anyone know of a mini-pump that might even fit in a seat-bag?

I got a little Blackburn pump.
I keep it in my Camel Back side pocket.
Works great.
If thats to big I would use co2!
check w/LBS, but remember--you may have to USE it.retro

You can compare in any bike shop or the Performance/Nashbar catalog. Several will fit in a seat bag or jersey pocket. But don't forget you may have to USE it someday--can't remember the brand, but I read one test of a mini-pump that took more than 800 strokes to get to 100 psi.

makes a good mini pump. It is the only pump I take with me but it does take a bit of work to get the job done. I would estimate 120 strokes give or take.
Probably won't fit in a saddle bagB2

but it seems to work OK and you CAN fit it in a jersey pocket.

I take one of these as a backup along with a CO2 setup.

thanks for the suggestionsmoschika

i'm carring CO2 now but wouldn't mind a back-up. but i don't like how most pumps mount to the bottle mounts and frame pumps keep falling of the bike, unless you strap them down or mess up the paint.
