Full Length Frame Pump?

My old Ti road bike has a peg behind the head tube to allow the mounting of a pump along the top tube. I was wondering if there was such a thing as a modern frame pump that will fit on the peg? There's a few frame pumps around but I can't find one that mounts to a frame peg. I don't really care too much about how it works, but it has to look cool :lol:

Zefal HPX

I've had one for almost 20 years. Not sure it meets the "has to look cool" criteria.

^Thanks. That looks ideal to be honest. I just don't want some God awful looking molded 'futuristic' piece of crap. A google image search shows that is does fit onto the small head tube pump peg / nipple thing that I have.

The only acceptable option for a road bike especially of it is old is a Silca pump. With a Campy head.

Those Silca frame pumps were plastic garbage. More than one rider had the handle blow off when the presta valve stayed open and whatever psi in the tire blew the handle off. They were only marginally better with a Campagnolo head.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

I had a few of those Zefal's. One trick we had was to slide a hunk of narrow road inner tube over the main tube. That quieted down the rattle of the handle against the main tube. And made it black.

Remember those in black. One guy I know of could possibly have one in his old shop. Michael Barry's dad had a shop of Bermondsey that was a Mecca for old school gear.
