How to attach Topeak Road Morph to frame.

How do you guys attach the Topeak Road Morph to your frames?

It looks like a decent little pump, but I do not see the frame attachment.

Preferably something to attach to the water cage mounts.

Would this work?

Hurricane ATB mini pump mount




Thanks!

Just get some Velvo straps to hold the pump to your frame.

I used the standard mount clamp that comes with the pump under the bottle cage. I have seen the same thing done on the seat tube.

I didn't know the pump shipped with a mount included.

Thanks!

Mine didn't come with that piggyback mount. Just the mount to attach to the standoffs... or whatever they're called. Call Topeak and ask them to sell you the special waterbottle mount for the road morph. It looks a lot like the one you imaged.. but has the velcro strap and is correctly sized for the road morph.

I believe the hurricane mount is too large for the road morph and the pump will slip down into your chainrings, if mounted on the downtube or seattube.

If you don't have a mount, just email the company. I asked how I could buy another mount so I could share it between two bikes. They just sent an extra one free of charge. Love them!

Looks like you are missing a part. It should sandwich between your water bottle and the frame. I don't know if this photo will do it justice but the bottle cage sits atop the pump bracket and the pump clamps in from the side with the help of a velcro wrap.

Check this image for the Topeak piggyback mount:


Here's another shot of it on the seat tube, but I didn't like it there:

Yes. Get some sticky back velcro and put the loopy part in the holder to stop rattling.

Have a c/f tandem. Glued the female receptacle to the boob tube, and inserted the pump (you see it in the photo just under the sync/crossover chain) No fuss, no muss.
BTW: Best pump we've owned in over 33 years of tandeming!

I have two Road Morphs. The first one I got for my hybrid came with a mount that fastens to the top tube with a screw type strap (like a hose clamp). The second one for my road bike came with a mount that attaches to the bottle holder mounts, but takes the place of the water bottle. I could also have ziptied it to the top tube, but didn't want to mount it that way on a CF frame.

I had to get a 3rd mount from Topeak that would allow piggybacking with a water bottle, per the example pics I posted above.

Wow!

I just called Topeak Customer Service and told them I needed a mount for the Road Morph that would allow it to be attached to the water cage and the agent asked for my address and said he would send one out free.

That's customer service!!

So did Topeak change the mount for the Road Morph? Or is a separate one available outside of what it ships with?

I bought a Road Morph last year. I can mount to the water bottle cage holes, but then I can't put a cage there.

There is a mount that will work with the Road Morph that will let you piggyback with a water bottle... see my pics for more info. You will have to call Topeak to get it. US distributor is Todson: 800-213-4561

There's a separate mount available that lets it mount to the chainstays. I have one coming so no pics yet. I'll be using the water bottle mount on one bike and the chainstay mount on another so I only have to buy one pump.

Planet Bike also makes a holder that mounts underneath the water bottle cage. The Mountain Morph pump fits perfectly and the Road Morph requires a few wraps of electrical tape to make it fit.

This mount works great with the Road Morph, but I've only been able to get them from the UK...so it's good to know that Topeak has started meeting the demand themselves.

I did not want to install the Topeak-supplied mount with the glorified cable ties that are required on my new Serotta, so I used the Hurricane mount as shown here and then used two of the Hurricane velcro straps to secure the pump. No problems.

Nice water bottle. You really need the Bike to work one on there as well full the full Seattle look.

I agree that it seems like a part may be missing. I have mine mounted under the down tube like this:



It required using zip ties to put the mount on and the pump clips in and then is secured with a velcro strap. Very easy on and off, which is good because if/when I park the bike outside, I won't leave stuff on it.

10 wheels is right you have something missing in there, the velcro strap which will hold the pump into that holder. To attach it, remove your bottle cage, put that mount under the bottle cage and screw them together, the screw is long enough to hold them together forever. dont forget to put that strap before putting in the screw.
