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.

Check out the video below to see the handy pump in action.
