Title says it all. I'd like to mount 2 water bottle cages, also accomodate a pump clamp that bolts between the frame and the cage. Any ideas?
The cages I bought (cheap ones from a big box store) came with straps that go around the frame. They work but aren't as nice as braze-ons, and wouldn't work for the pump clamp.
I too, wonder if there is a more permanent soloution?

I've used the clamp on type before and they work better (and don't damage the paint) when I put old inner tube scrap between the clamp and frame.

understand about tire scraps, but what about the pump clamp?

I can't believe that nobody has suggested this (http://www.twofish.biz/bike.html) before:

These bottle cage clamps (http://www.loosescrews.com/index.cgi?d=single&c=Accessories&sc=Water%20Bottle&tc=&item_id=AP-BCP&id=44042723794)are zinc plated instead of stainless, but just $1.15 at Loose screws.
