Bike Frame Pump....

Well, I just bought a small frame pump for emergencies, and it came with mounting gear. I mounted it on my bike, but noticed the mount makes it so the pump is on the side of my frame instead of the side. I was wondering if there is anywhere I can get a new mount so it will be on top of the frame and won't stick out like it is now. I attached a picture so you know what I mean:

It's done that way so you could have a waterbottle bracket mouted to the same mounting point.

I'm with you tfunk...it's never gotten in my way. I have a similar model (Topeak Peakini) but it's mounted on the other side of the bike and on the tube between the seat and the BB. Never even bumped it.
