Does anyone know where to get an airpump bracket?

Hello all,

I do some of my shopping for bike parts on ebay and I tried to search for an airpump bracket like this one,



but not exactly like this one. This a terrible design IMHO in that it takes up the spot of a water bottle bracket. I wish I could find the one I really want for an example, it's floating around here somewhere Anyways I'm looking for the bracket that keeps the pump off center and still be able to use the spot for a water bottle bracket.

I've used "air pump bracket" under "cycling" in ebay and came up with nothing really. Any idea on what to use for a search term? I'm open to bike accessories suppliers too, I'm just not too keen on paying retail PLUS shipping charges, but I am open to suggestions.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated and most welcomed.

Here is what Topeak has. The LBS should have no issues getting one.

The one you show is for mounting under the top tube.

Hmmmmm........ it has holes for mounting this where a water bottle cage goes. I guess with zip ties it can be mounted under the top tube. Or you could even argue that the mount on the water bottle holes are under the top tube too.

@ no1mad, thanks for the link, I'll contact Topeak on Tuesday and see what they say. I'll be seeing my LBS this week for something else and see what they have.

Looks similar to the bottle cage mount used with my Lezyne Micro Floor Drive HP Pump. Replacement brackets are available on their website.

Your mount can be used under the top tube or on a water bottle cage. If you want a mount that works with the water bottle cage, do a Google with the terms 'bicycle pump mounting bracket'. You should find lots of options.

You may be able to just ask your local bike shop if they have some of those in a bucket somewhere -- they seem to pile up over time.

That goes double for any place that fixes up broken bikes and sells them (such as Austin's non-profit Yellow Bike Project), as bikes will tend to come in with those mounts on them and no pumps on them, the pump being lost or broken long before.
