    Default Mounting a frame pump without a pump peg

    Im thinking about a frame pump after all of these years carrying a mini-pump and neither of my bikes has a pump peg. I really dont want to use a clip-on peg like I did on my Sears Free Spirit in the 70s and just using a Velcro strap on the top tube seems to be inviting paint damage. Is using the rear triangle the best option? Thanks

    An inelegant solution is to use a zip tie and leave the nub facing inward.

    Twofish bike block, rubber & velcro, use x2 for frame pumps, like a Silca Operativo.
    I use 1 to hold a Silca Tattico pump on the seat tube.

    I have used a velco strap on my bike for years without any paint damage.

    I have used a Velcro strap on the one bike without a peg for about forever…but if you are really concerned perhaps a piece of rubber under the Velcro a la what you would do on a light mount on a seatpost?
    If I knew what I was doing, Id be doing it right now

    Not what you asked Bob, I traded my full length frame pump for a Silca Tattico mini. The Tattico works so damn good that I’ve got them on two if my bikes now. It takes a few more strokes from the Tattico to get the pressure up to specs but it’s so compact, stows well and is easy to use, it’s a good trade-off.

    No pump peg on this one.

    Due to my oversight, no pump peg of this one either. Been running a Silca strap. Plenty of miles in all kinds of conditions. No issues with paint. Tom's paint jobs are super durable. If there is a question about the durability of the paint then perhaps it would be a concern. However the strap isn't rubbing or moving.

    Same. Some of my bikes have pump pegs and some don’t. But I use a strap anyway to keep it from rattling. If your concerned about paint damage a wrap of tape around any contact point should protect you.

    a zip tie around the tube helps secure the frame pump and keep it from slipping.

    One of my long-time adventure bikes started life as a cyclocross race bike, so it had no pump peg (and no water bottle bosses). I added them.

    For the pump peg I bent a stainless steel washer to the OD of the head tube and ground a flat in a ball bearing for the center nubbin. These were epoxied to the back of the head tube. They were secure enough that I never used a strap and I never lost a pump.

    Also used a real Silca.
