BioLogic’s PostPump 2.0 offers on-the-go assistance for low tires, as it easily transforms into a full-powered floor pump.

The pump hides in the post, and includes a metal foot stand for simple filling.

The 2.0 version fits both both Presta and Schrader valves.

Currently the PostPump 2.0 is only offered in a 33.9mm diameter version designed specifically for bikes made by Biologic’s “sister company” Tern, which specializes in ultra-portable folding models, but the company plans to incorporate additional sizes in the future.

A Bike Pump That Hides In Your Seat Post

When it’s not refilling your tires on the go, PostPump 2.0 tucks away cleanly out of sight.

Flat bike tires are a massive bummer, but pinch-flats are almost extra frustrating; rather than running over a stray nail or something sharp in the street, these sneaky snakebite-like holes most often occur after rolling out on under-inflated tires. So, basically, it’s your own damn fault if you forget to check the pressure before you ride. D’oh!

Sure, portable pumps and CO2 inflators offer decent on-the-go assistance if you’re super low, but the cycle-savvy experts at BioLogic created a clever, multi-functional tool that won’t take up any extra space in your bag (or get accidentally left behind at home). PostPump is a removable seatpost that doubles as a full-powered floor pump, transforming with a few simple steps; so, you know, James Bond might own one if he regularly pursued master villains on two wheels. Following the success of the original, the brand introduced version 2.0 last year with a host of refined features that make it even easier to use: a revamped "flip-to-fit" adapter works for both Presta and Schrader valves; parts that were previously made in plastic—pump head, foot stand, and air hose—were replaced by far sturdier machined aluminum, stainless steel, and flexible rubber; and the overhaul was enough to net the product a Red Dot award.

Currently the PostPump 2.0 is only offered in a 33.9mm diameter version designed specifically for bikes made by Biologic’s "sister company" Tern, which specializes in ultra-portable folding models, but the company plans to incorporate additional sizes in the future. In the meantime, be conscientious and show your tires love by keeping them super firm at all times.

    1) What about the grease on my seatpost?  Anyone who has ever had a seized post does this.  
    2) Also, when you change a tire on the go without a stand you're going to flip the bike over and set it on it's handlebars and seat - the bike wont stand on it's own without the seatpost in place.  
    3) If you own a bike aesthetically clean enough to warrant a hidden frame pump you're probably not going to want to put your pump on the ground and then put the dirty pump back inside of your frame along with any water that has got into your seatpost and dripped down into your bottom bracket.  It won't take long to lose that little end cap ...
    4)  Also you mention that you'll never forget your pump but none of that matters unless you remembered a patch kit and tire levers.

    It's a showpiece for custom show bikes and that's not a huge market; what bike shop would stock this?  I just wish that Red Dot would consider design outside of it's narrow framework.

    As someone who had to replace a flat this weekend.
    1) Sure there's grease, but if you have a flat tire and are in need of changing it yourself as opposed to getting a ride or getting help--this is small price I would pay.
    2) You can take the wheel off with the seat on. But once the wheel is off, there's little need to keep the bike inverted until you are ready to put the wheel back on again. Sure there is an order of operations, but if you are smart enough to change the tire yourself-you should be smart enough
    3) If you are in a pinch-you are going to want a pump. Hopefully this is not a regular occurance
    4) I carry a patch kit in my bag. Tire levels can be optional if you are persistent enough. A pump is just one less thing I have in m bag.
