That is why the Road Morph is different. It works like a floor pump where arm strength is not the main thing. Yet, I see even on You Tube demonstrations, the person not using their own weight and leg strength to pump up the tire.
Yup ^ Exactly why I love the Road Morph. I don't have the strength to use the other style of pumps. I'm barely 5'4 & 125 lbs so my road tires only need to get into the 60-70s, but still around 30 psi I have to really start using my weight to get it any higher.

For the pump attachment - It does come with a mount to attach in place of a bottle cage, or with zip ties elsewhere on the frame...But you can also still buy the side mount for under the cage, part Tpd-2c Bracket.
