    On longer rides (40 miles plus) I take 2 water bottles and there is no obvious place for my pump. I can pop it in my jersey but it sticks out quite a bit and I wonder if it could cause an injury if I come off the bike. I have identified the rear seat stays as possible candidates for the bracket but I fear It might look a bit silly there.
     
  2. I have a holder that fits along side my water bottle cage

  4. As per RULE #30 :thumbsup: ^_^


    [EDIT] IMO though this is somewhat relevant to the bike you ride

    I keep mine in the back pocket of my jersey. I found when it was attached to the frame it got clogged up with dirt.

    In my saddlepack (only about 150 mm long). When I used a longer one I strapped it under the saddle pack, with a toe-strap.

    Holder along side bottle.

    I dont follow the rules so rule 30 is not applicable ^_^

    Holder next to the bottle, if you want a hard object in your pocket if you fall off good luck to you .
    Edit,
    Of course the velo rules are not meant to be taken to seriously :smile: i can add for commeuting the pump resides in a pannier.
