Looking for a combination waterbottle cage and pump holder.

Right now, I have a water bottle on my down tube and a pump on the seat tube. I would like to have 2 water bottles for those hot summer rides. Does anyone know of a combo water bottle cage pump holder that can carry both on one boss?

That is all. Thx.

The pump I have has a pump holder designed to sit alongside the water bottle cage.

Does it have to be a single unit or can it be two piece?

What pump will you mount???

Have you researched Lezyne? They have some nice setups that fit your description of what you want.

My Topeak Roadmorph pump comes with a bracket that bolts under the water bottle cage. It's a nice pump with a pressure gauge. Has worked well for me several times.

The cage pictured does not even require the pictured under-cage pump bracket, as the cage itself has a pump mount integrated into the design (for Lezyne pumps).

I have the Lezyne Carbon Cages and the matching Carbon Road Drive pump, which straps directly to the cage. Smart design.

If you're willing to give up a full size frame pump, you can get one of the minipumps as mentioned above and most come with a mounting bracket that is held by the bottle cage bolts. Alternatively, if you have space, you can get a frame pump that fits under your top tube instead of along the seat tube.

A lot of pumps come with a bracket the screws on under the cage. They work great.

My Lezyne pump came with a bracket that fits under any standard water bottle cage. I didn't need to purchase a Lezyne cage for it to fit.

That is also a cool idea. It must be heavy but it removes the clutter alltogether.
Cool thanks.

FYI their pumps (mostly, I believe) come with a bracket that mounts the pump to the side of a bottle cage.

I did put my pump on the top tube a while ago. I am always lifting or carrying the bike, and the TT pump gets in the way.

Maybe I'll have to see if I have any 33.9mm seat posts and try the seat post pump. I suppose a QR helps with it.

If your seatstays support it, you can try mounting a full-length pump along one of them. I would recommend the NDS seatstay for obvious reasons.

I don't remember what the weight was. I know there were a few companies producing posts like this and I have also seen someone modify an existing pump to fit their seatpost. The integrated seatpost-pump in the picture above is made by BioLogic. I think the new ones only fit more modern seatpost diameters but many many years ago, Odyssey also made one which you may be able to still find NIB on eBay if you need something for say 26.8mm.

Now if you don't mind the clutter and want to go all out with an integrated on-the-fly tyre inflation system, perhaps the ADAPTRAC is for you.




Actually it's meant more for allowing MTBers to quickly vary their air pressure depending on the terrain than it is for flat repairs.

It's kinda funny, but I have most of the variants listed here in current use:

-- top tube frame fit Zefal HpX on the Lemond
-- Lezyne Carbon Cage direct mount for Carbon Road Drive pump on Breezer
-- Lezyne alu Road Drive using H2O boss bracket on Mercier mini-velo
-- Biologic Seatpost Pump on Dahon folding bike

My other bikes all use various minipumps...all of which, by the way, came with a water bottle boss mounting bracket.

After using CO2 catridges for over 25 years, I finally decided that the advancements in pumps has gotten to the point where they are small enough and can produce high enough pressures for me to go back to using them. So in sort of a continuation of my pump-in-post posts, I did some measurements and decided to go get a Lezyne Road Drive to see if I could fit it in my seatpost. I opted for the medium sized one.

Note that I knew this was going to be a tight fit because my Easton CT2 post is 26.8mm OD with about a 22mm ID and Road Drive is supposed to measure 17mm at the barrel and 23mm at the handle. Those running more modern posts will likely be able to fit the entire pump inside their posts assuming their posts have at least 216mm of free space length inside. Everything fit nice and snug and the rubber caps added just enough grip to keep the pump from sliding out.

Here is the result...




In case anyone is wondering what the bundle of black sticks is about, they're three spare Mavic bladed spokes wrapped in fishing line in case I bust a spoke on my Ksyriums while out riding. I just throw them down the seat-tube and tie the end of the fishing line to the rubber cap of the pump so I can retrieve them when I pull out the seatpost.

how does it pump? Will it get to 100 psi easily?

and you need a multi tool too

85 PSI is actually pretty easy. 100 PSI isn't too difficult. I usually run 120 PSI and that takes a bit more. You just have to have a little patience. The pump is rated for 160 PSI but I don't have anything that can handle that kind of pressure so I haven't tried getting to it. Bear in mind, that I just picked this up today and have only tested it out at home. I haven't had a chance to try using it under duress out on the road in the middle of nowhere yet. And although I don't necessarily look forward to a flat, I'm sure there will be one in my future.

Others in this thread have already posted that they use Lezynes. They're probably better equipped to comment.

Yeah... I currently have an old Topeak Alien in my saddle bag along with speed levers, tube and spare quick-connect link for my chain. And I've been carrying around the obnoxiously big and bulky Mavic spoke key. I'm looking for a newer multi-tool with a Mavic-compatible spoke wrench. I think I'll probably go for the Topeak Mini-20.

No... the spokes don't rattle around in the frame. Due to the very specific shape of my seat-tube, they get pushed down to a point where they naturally get lodged (aided by the handle of the pump pushing down on them) against the bend and there's enough angle to keep them from shifting around.

Before I did the hide-a-pump thing, I used to store the spokes directly in the seatpost and simply wrapped them up with a piece of old inner tube to snug them up inside the post.

I also have a couple Lezyne frame pumps and they both reside under the water bottle cage. My mountain bike one has never come close to coming loose even on really rough terrain.

Blackburn sells (or sold?) the SK-1 bracket which fits between the frame & bottle cage much like that "Road Drive" thing in post #12 (but it also includes a velcro strap), fits a lot of non-Blackburn pumps as well. I have those on all of my bikes.
