I was all hung up about deciding on which pump to get, then I realized - even the full size road morph is no larger (diameter-wise) than my specialized mountain bike pump that comes with a under the water bottle cage mount.
So I ordered the full size road morph. I just installed it beside the water bottle cage. Rather than using mounting screws, I used the plastic ties to attach the mount to the downtube under the water bottle cage.
Seems to fit. I used to have my specialized mountain bike pump there, so I doubt size will be an issue. The crank arms have *just* enough clearance to get by the pump (probably 1-2cm of space). But they don't move, so I think it will work out, but I haven't actually ridden it yet. I don't want to sound *to* optimistic since I haven't taken it out yet.
On my other bike, which has a mini-morph, they just attached the mount to one of the down-tubes of the rack, using some foam to give the mount a little more to grip onto. This has really been perfect - out of the way, doesn't need to be moved, unlike mounting it under the top tube (because of my car bike rack).
