|Anyone added a pump peg to a Ti frame???||hycobob|

|When I got my Ti frame I didn't even think about a frame pump peg. Yet for extended rides it would be nice to be able to carry one under the top tube. I know some people put it verticle on the seat tube after removing the bottle cage...but I like having two cages. Will welding a pump peg discolor the steer tube? Also who could I get a Ti pump peg from? I shouldn't need to have a frame builder for the welding as a friend is a top notch Ti welder...I just haven't asked him yet.|

|Rather than have your frame welded, get a zip tie close to the colour of your frame and wrap it around the head tube.
Put the "Bump" facing out under the top tube and presto you have a pump peg. No welding involved.

|But with a polished Ti frame, it didn't look right. I'm probably being silly; I have even forgone my CatEye Astralle computer for the Specialized wireless to keep it looking clean.
Speaking of clean...Never-Dull is awsome for bare Ti!!!

|Maybe try a dab of jb weld and a nub of metal or just the jb weld itself.|

|I ride a 60 cm Merckx and found that a medium sized Blackburn frame pump fits nicely along the seat stay. While the Merckx has a pump peg, I prefer the way it looks on the seat stay. I've ridden it this way for 3 years and have never had a problem.|
