The BioLogic PostPump 2.0 is a high-capacity bike pump integrated into the seatpost. The pump has an ergonomic design, with a flip-out foot stand and a hose. Instead of using a mini-pump while out riding, bikers can refill the air in their tires much easier. The saddle is used as a handle so you can stand comfortably while you use the device.

The PostPump 2.0 features precision-machined aluminum fittings to increase maximum pressure and stroke volume. It won a 2012 Red Dot Design Award and has a suggested retail price of $50. Philip Robinson, inventor of the PostPump concept, said:

The PostPump has three important advantages compared to standard hand pumps. First, it has a much higher stroke capacity so it takes a lot fewer pumps to get your tire inflated. Anyone who’s arm has cramped and has had to take a break while pumping a tire can appreciate this. Second it works exactly like a floor pump; you stand and push down to pump — no more kneeling in gravel while you pump. And finally, because the pump is hidden inside your seatpost, its always ready when you need it.
