I’ve got a frame pump sized to go along the top bar but my bike does not have the little pin on the head tube to help keep it from popping out when it gets jarred. Straps will keep it from flying into the street when it comes loose, but don’t keep it from bouncing out. The pump is too long to fit vertically along the seat tube and sticks out of my bag. Does anyone have any ideas how to make this work or do I need to buy a shorter pump? A hose clamp in the head tube with a machine screw sticking through it is the best I have come up with so far.
On using an SRM: “Are you trying to turn me into one of those crazy riders or what?”
Paris-Roubaix: “Roubaix is a nice race to watch on TV, but not to ride…We were doing 60kph as we rode into the [Arenberg] forest and never in my life would I have thought we were going to turn down that road.”
Rainy training rides: “Stay at home and ride the rollers”
Training volume: “I go well with relatively little training…if I did as much as Erik Zabel I wouldn’t win anything”
