A foot stand is folded out from the bottom and an included hose run from the pump to the tire's valve stem (Presta or Shrader), allowing the Kickstand Pump to be used as a 120-psi (8.3-bar) mini floor pump

When most of us think of a cycling multi-tool, we picture something that goes in a jersey pocket or saddle pack. Seoul-based company Leeman, however, is looking at things a little differently. Its Kickstand Pump mounts on the bike, and serves not only as a kickstand and pump, but also a tire lever and tail light.

The aluminum alloy tire lever is flat-fork-shaped, allowing it to be snugged up between the bike's rear dropout and quick release lever (assuming there is one). Because the lever pivots relative to the rest of the tool, it's able to stay in place when the tool is flipped up for riding or flipped down for kickstand use.

When needed as a pump, the tool is released from the bike simply by pulling the quick release open. A foot stand can then be folded out from the bottom and an included hose run from the pump to the tire's valve stem (Presta or Schrader), allowing the tool to be used as a 120-psi (8.3-bar) mini floor pump.

And yes, it has a red flashing LED on the end, which can be used as a tail light – albeit one that sits rather low – when the tool is on the bike and flipped up.

The Kickstand Pump weighs in at 196 grams (6.9 oz). According to Leeman, that's less than the combined weight of a separate kickstand, pump, tire lever and tail light. It's currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, where a pledge of US$45 will get you one – when and if it reaches production.

So the red lens for the taillight will get all scratched up and scuffed from being pressed against the ground. No, thanks.

it looks like it would do each of its many jobs poorly.. even a kickstand, the attachment to the bike seems weak, also describing it made of a thin walled tube, seems weak... and that isn;t the best place for a kickstand to be, should be closer to center of gravity, the middle wle

Nice Try. Now lose the little light and fix the other bad ideas because this is overall a pretty good concept.

Bluetooth. It doesn't have Bluetooth. What's the hold up?

wle, I'm guessing you're not a cyclist. Rear-mounted kickstands have been available for a very long time, and the Greenfield Stabilizer is very well-regarded. Also, there is the KSA standard for kickstands bolted directly to the frame rather than clamped on. Guess where they are?

...now that's thinking outside the box!

should have designed it to flip up so the light would be higher

It is nice to see all you NAYSAYERS are still alive and well!Yes the light might get "scratched up but that will add to the sparkle effect....as for the rest of the tools I have no need,so for me it would only need 2 B a stand & a light.....I don't have flats.so no pump is needed...I generally get 400-500miles out of each tire so that little tire tool isn't needed either......so that is $45.00 for a kick stand and a taillight....I'll pass.....
