Topeak Mini Morph

Greetings......

How does the "Topeak Mini Morph" Pump mount? In place of a water bottle cage?

Thanks, Sanchan

Jersey pocket.
Or utilize velcro on any tube.

If you do use the provided bracket, it can be zip-tied to just about any tube as well.

Most mini-pump brackets can mount under a waterbottle cage using longer bolts so you can have both using the same mounting holes.

It is the kind that mounts in place of a bottle cage if you use the bolts. However, it can also be zip tied to the tubes as well. On my little brother's bike, I zip tied his so that it tucks in nicely beside the down tube bottle cage. I made sure the zip ties were up-hill from the bottle cage bolts, but resting against them. This will prevent any sliding tendency. To date, it has not budged and looks really good.

I use a road morph and I called and asked for the newer bottle cage mount. This one will mount beside a bottle cage using the cage's bolts. They charged me 5$ + 2$ shipping... 7 total. I did not mind, I have received so much stuff free of charge from Topeak over the years. I have heard of folks getting it free of charge. I guess it depends on who answers the phone. BTW ... The new style bottle cage mount works really good. I hope that becomes the new standard.

Have decided to go with the "Topeak Road Morph G" and I intend to mount it on the seat tube where my water bottle cage would normally go. I am assuming it will come with that mounting hardware. (I hope!)

Try using an old tube cut in a long strip to attach my pump to the seat post. Works great.
