@ HammerTime2 - Both the DS & Mechanic spoke very little English so I didn't even bother trying to tell them my name :lol: Hence, the reason why my name does not appear in the GDS article.

Re Prendrefeu/Kjetil: yeah, no reflection of me lol. That building has a curved plan so all the glass plates are at angles to each other, and, as it happened, none were at 90 degrees to me.

@Tinchy - how have you gotten on with the Topeak? Can it be fitted the other way around to better line up with the top tube? I know it is a bit of a silly question, but I am thinking of getting one and I think it would look best the other way around. Also, is that a 56cm frame with the size large Master Blaster?

@btompkins Think The reason I have it that way is cos the other way round the end opposite to the pump handle doesn't sit we'll with the welds between the top tube and head tube... Il check in the morning but think that's why I have it that way. It's a 58cm and yeah size large pump.

Great pump, has helped me and others frequently. I don't see why people bother in bringing a pump if it's not going to get you up to a decent psi .... Otherwise you just fix the flat but your ride will still be affected as you'll have to bounce around on 60psi or whatever the mini pump can do...

@jmilliron - Great pics....wish I had the time to do similar.

@tinchy - Thanks for checking on that! Really interested in the pump, want to get away from CO2 for training type rides. I wonder if a smaller size would fit in the seat stay?

No-No, I meant in the area along the seat STAY not the seat POST! Would never want to lose a bottle....I've seen frame pumps stuffed in that area in the rear triangle, if you will.

@btompkins ah yeah sorry ;) would have thought that would be more obvious aesthetically as to where I have mine - I often forget it's even on there especially with the thick caad10 top tube
