    For your specific (and as I said, I think legitimate with the knowledge of your diabetes) requirements, I guess CO2 is the only real option. I personally would maybe look at a combined pump/co2 head https://eu.crankbrothers.com/collect...ts/klic-hv-co2 or similar. The last time someone who I was riding with used co2, I saw all the downsides: you can only inflate once, and he ran low on pressure again later (burped air with a tubeless setup).

    Seatpost is hard since it's really slim. I haven't seen any good ones yet. (Some people put tire levers there, but I don't really think that's worth it. My idea has recently been a really small bag under the saddle, attaching to the bolts of the back bumper, and the back of the seatpost. I don't think one would notice it there while riding. For either patches and a set of allen keys, or a small first aid kit. There are some similar to what I'm thinking of made for bikes, and I think some of them could be adapted pretty easily.

    Since I now have a dedicated backpack for riding that has a toolkit and first aid kitpermanently in it, I haven't really been looking for a suitable model much anymore, but that's where my head goes.

        It could be a good idea! I just cannot find any review. Also there's no news page on their website or any kind of link to a specilistic site's review... so I won't ever spend any money on that pump

          There are several different brands of these handheld Mini Air Inflators available and a few hundred ratings from owners can be found on Amazon. Do a Google search for "Mini Air Inflator" to find them. In general they seem to be highly rated.

          The Chicholic Portable Air Compressor Mini Air Inflator Electric Hand Held Tire Pump seems to be the most popular. I've never used one.

            That's an interesting concept. But having looked at their video, I doubt it will fit into a seat post. It looks big in the hand of the user - and they clearly chose small hands for the demo.

              I'm dismissing the idea of using the inside of the seatpost. This weekend I broke the seatpost and bought a new one made for bikes (I used a brake rail adpter). No more hole to use till next seatpost (and next handmade saddle cover which I didn't seam)
