Okay, so I bought the Topeak road morph pump. Incidentally, very nice pump, I like it quite a bit. However, there is one small problem. Or large problem, depending on how you look at it.
As a fairly small individual, I have a fairly small bike frame. There is absolutely no place on my frame that the road morph fits. The downtube is the only place it could conceivably fit, and that isn't an option for a few reasons. 1) It's one of those "teardrop" shaped downtubes, and the mounting hardware is more for circular tubes. 2) The mounting hardware doesn't work in conjunction with my water bottle cage. 3) The dog ate my mounting hardware anyway.
Besides, I don't know how much I would have trusted that mounting clip.
I do carry the pump in my panniers...but there are some times that I want to go out for a recreational (non-commute) ride without my panniers; which leaves me without my pump. I do carry an emergency CO2 shot as my primary quick fix, but what are the odds that I'd either mess that up on my first attempt, or maybe not empty the bottle perfectly thus requiring a "top off"?
The question here is: Does anyone use the Crank Bros Power Pump Alloy? That one looks like it will fit (I measured this time), it has a guage, a 130 psi capacity, and a mounting bracket that works with my water bottle cage. But how easy is it to use?
