Where can I buy a Blackburn SCK1 SideClip Kit in the USA?

I've been using a Blackburn SCK1 SideClip Kit (plastic pump holder that mounts in between your bottle cage and frame & holds the pump off to the side...see picture) for years. Got it from a friend ~5 years ago, and it works wonderfully for mounting my Topeak RoadMorph G pump.


Just got a new bike, so I want to be able to carry a RoadMorph on that bike too. Was disappointed to discover that Topeak ships their RoadMorph with a mount that does not fit in between your bottle cage & frame but rather takes up the space of an entire bottle cage. No matter, I'll just go buy me another one of these nifty Blackburn SCK1 SideClip Kits, right?

Wrong. None of the LBS' in my city carry this Blackburn SCK1 SideClip Kit...and the only hits I get when I Google that product are in the UK!

Anyone know anywhere in the USA where I can buy a Blackburn SCK1 SideClip Kit? I'd happily order from the UK, except the recent weather- and holiday-related delays in getting product from England makes me hesitant (my last ProBikeKit order is going on 4 weeks old). I suppose I could just buy a Blackburn pump and get one for free, but that seems like a last resort. Someone's gotta sell these things, no? Or have a bin full of them in the back of their shop from all the customers who bought Blackburn pumps but just wanna carry them in their jersey pockets?

Anyone? Bueller?

Thanks.

Awesome! I sent Blackburn customer service an email a couple days ago & hadn't heard back, guess I'll pick up the phone.

Can I ask what they cost?

Thanks.

BR, This was quite some time ago, but they weren't much IIRC. Instead of "just" I should have written "have", or something similar.

Peromance Bike Shop has mounts as well. They have a couple of different sizes but I beleive one of them works for the Morphs.

Performance only has one size to fit mountain bike pumps. It can be made to fit the Road Morph by adding a layer of velcro loopies in the clip. The adapter doesn't have the velcro strap which is absolutely necessary to keep the pump in place.

If you can get the Blackburn one, it's a better fit.

This is what I did. I fitted some pre-glued velcro soft loopies into the Performance ones, which I paid about $2 for, if I recall correctly. It works great. The Blackburn clip works the best though.

On a side note, What is it with some of these bicycle components manufacturers? This has been an issue for a long time. Most people who use the Topeak Road Morph pump like the darn thing, except for the mount. Topeak has had many years to make the product perfect by "fixing" the mount issue, but refused to do so. What a shame?

Bob, PM me with your mailing address. I have a bunch of extra Blackburn clips and you can have a couple for the asking. I'll send two but only one will have the velcro retainer strap.

An LBS had some generic pump brackets. Happen to fit the Road Morph perfectly so I bought a couple. May want to check the LBS.
