HA! V1nce: I used to have a seatpost pump! These days I'm running the Topeak Morph and it's attached to the handlebar post - easier to use and has a gauge.
James: it's not too tight a fit but I take extra care getting the valve stem out. Once it's safely out, the tricks are: "twist" tube while pulling it and use a really beefy Schwalbe tube that's less likely to shred.
I'm thinking of tapping out that hole since it's only about 1/3 the size of the frame tubing. I wouldn't get too wild but a bit wider would be useful.
Just got home from the local bike co-op I'm volunteering at. Picked up a Deore LX hub for $5. (!) Trying to find a set of 32-hole rims to build up a second set of wheels for the folder. More on that as it happens.
