    Pump questions.

    Some of you may have seen my thread for my new to me 1975 Schwinn Collegiate Sport. I am looking for a frame pump for it, preferably period correct. I have searched through the forums, but couldn't find much information. It almost seems like the search function is jacked up, it didn't look right to me. not like it had looked in the past. I Googled NOS frame pumps, and all I could seem to find either didn't come with a pump head, or it was a presta valve. I've got Schrader valves right now, and the replacement tubes I bought have Schrader valves also. Does anyone know here I can find something that will allow me to use the Schrader valves, and still look good with my Schwinn? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Parker

    This is what I use:


    They are pretty inexpensive at around $7.00 and come in either a short 9" (i think) or 16".
    The pump has a 12" hose that pulls out of the end with a shrader valve.
    Search for "Sunlite Chrome Frame Pump" or "Pyramid Chrome Frame Pump" on ebay or google shopping.

    Wow, quick response, thanks. I figured I would go and measure the inside of my frame. Looks like the 16 will fit, but, on the top tube, I have a brake line running there, would that effect how I would mount it?
