    Another new place to mount a mini pump

    Sooo....the mount that came with my Topeak RaceRocket HP broke (the rubber-band thingy), and I have no problem carrying it in my jersey pocket, but on long rides I just found myself carrying too much. So I started playing around with mounting under my saddle...the height of the B17 creates enough distance from the rails to be able to hold the pump. I started with zip ties, which hold on tightly but obviously need to be cut and replaced when the pump is needed. So I then moved on to velcro straps, which have worked nicely. One way is having run the length of the seat, where it is completely invisible, but a bit harder to removed and put back. The other way is width-wise, which is held super tight and is really fast to remove and put back. 2013-02-19 13.24.15.jpg

    I have more pictures to show how the pump is mounted, but I can't figure out how to get pictures to show up!

    Maybe you can also say what a b17 is when you use the phrase.

    I run mine the same way. I hold it in place with Bongo Ties.

    I always have a couple of these ties with me on the bike.

    Here are a few more pics. This is with some tape around the pump for protection, and with the pump zip tied rather than velcroed. I know zip ties aren't as convenient, but I haven't had a flat in 7 or 8 months, and the pump is a back-up for my co2 (in the bag). I threw a couple small zip ties in the bag now as well. It took about 12 seconds to zip tie the pump on, so its not an inconvenience (from my perspective).

    Thats pretty cool, the BongoTies seem to improve the only issue with zip-ties (one-and-done). I will have to check them out.

    In the bottle in the back cage I have:

    Spare tube
    Patches & glue
    Topeak Mini pump
    Multi tool
    Hand towel
    2x tyre lever

    Phone & energy bar(s) in jersey pocket.

    This is the cleanest & quickest to use setup I've found...

    Can't stand the way stuff looks tacked around the bike, anal, lol
