Good method for stowing a mimi pump(5 posts)

I've got a little blackburn pump that travels in the jersey pocket on road rides. Little bugger pops out too often, and in a pack that's trouble. Anybody know of a frame clamp or something that works well? I'm not willing to give up either of my bottle cage mounts.

I did see a guy with a clamp system that attached to the back of his seatpost, holding the pump parallel to the post. Looked just right, anybody heard of this thing?

Thanks folks,

Alex

..that fits under a water bottle cage. The clip hangs off to one side, and the pump snaps on to it. My Air-stik came with one. Looks kinda dorky, but it works. Actually, I don't use the clip on my bike...I put the pump in my jersey pocket and clip the pump to my jersey. Clip goes on the outside, over the jersey and the pump.
Yup. Butt it's not for every one....that'smrfredtoyou

xxx uses it exclusively. The rest of us, well we store it more comfortable ways.

I rubberband it together with my spare tube, two plastic tire levers, tiny glueless patch kit, and two (5 and 6mm) L-shaped hex wrenches. It all fits nicely in my center pocket, and the additional bulk (particularly from the tube) and weight keeps it in solid, even over bumpy terrain and if I have to hop over things in the road.

Maybe your pump's too long for this, though? My Topeak Mini Master Blaster DX (road version) is about nine inches long, so it sticks out only about two or three inches from my pocket.

Good luck. Never seen that clamp thing you saw. Homemade, possibly.

crotch of your shorts. It will be out of the way, and make you look like more of a man.
