Has anyone found a good way to carry a pump? flats are probably the most common repair on the road.
I rarely use it, but I carry a pump. It's a black and hideous green "Mt. Zefal" job, not recommending for or against it, it's what the shop had at the time. It came with a couple of hanger straps that go around the frame like hose clamps, with a peg on each that go into each end of the pump. I keep it slung under my top tube. A cable tie around it in the middle makes sure I won't lose it to bumpy roads.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
