Good evening all!

Does anyone know where the pump holder is on the above mentioned bag?
Am looking to buy one along with a mini pump, and my local bike shops dont seem to stock any of these bags to have a butchers at, so i will be ordering online!

And a big ask i know, but does anyone have a pic of a mini pump attached to the bag?

Many thanks as always for your help

Clarkie :wink:

    I use the frame bracket that comes with the mini pump you buy. More secure, and I can see it all the time.
    Failing that, I put the pump in my jersey pocket... :wink:

    There isn't one on the small bag.
    It's underneath on the medium - a bit clumsy - sticks out. The holder that comes with the pump is much neater.
  • The bag has 2 elestic loops underneath it for your pump, but i found it swings around a lot and kept hitting the seat tube.

    It is as described above. I did keep a mini pump in there, but it fell out :evil: Don't use it.

    Must confess I don't bother with a mini pump anymore. I have a CO2 pump in the pack with 2 spare cartridges (that makes 3 in total). Basically if I get anymore punctures than can be handled by that then someone really doesn't want me to ride that day and I'll call a taxi to take me home :wink:
