I was given a lenzyne pump for christmas and want to mount it on the bike as I am concerned that if I have it in the back of my shirt and crash it may impale me!! ( Or am i being a Nancy)

I was thinking about putting it behind the seat post and making a bracket, or would it better or make no difference on the downtube.


If you're racing - you don't need one. If you're not racing - aero doesn't matter.

Why are so few of these questions being answered? I'm particularly interested in the Russian Amateur Cycling scene.

Not even if you puncture half way around a 20 mile road course with no neutral service car?

I carried a pump on my seat tube every time I raced. Got me out of trouble three times (but not the time that I forgot to put an inner tube in my back pocket)

I never did - nor did anyone else I'm aware of while racing. The following car usually had a radio and people usually got a lift back, somehow. I only ever recall flatting in two races, once with neutral service, and the other time was right by the HQ anyway.
