Why would you want a pump that you have to remove the seat post first to access it? Then have to make sure the seat is properly adjusted everytime you replace it. YUK! That's additional time, plus could eventually weaken and or strip the bolt if you accidently cross thread it while attempting to replace it then you will have to ride the bike while standing; plus the diameter of the pump to get it to fit inside the post has to be very small thus strength of the pump may not be very good. Personally I would hate that pump due to just the hassle of removing the seat post all the time just to fix a flat just for that problem alone.
Don't forget a lot of manufactures claim their pumps can reach X psi but in real life they all seem to be about 10 psi less then their claims.
If you want a small out of the way pump why not just a get a mini like the Torelli Aria which is the smallest and lightest pump on the market and still reach 90 to 100psi that attaches to the side of your water bottle cage with included brackets? These pumps use to come in different end caps colors, the one shown is black mine is yellow, not sure if other web or LBS bike stores have the other colors available, you would have to do a check. http://www.torelli.com/product_info....products_id=59
