Before I started as lead on the Trek MTB design team I worked on a number of Bontrager component projects throughout the years.  As design manager I continued to work on a few projects here and there, while leading other designers on the team to design award winning cycling products.
Our intern for the summer Jacob Price helped out with the early concept development for this pump.  We came up with some unique functionality that he went out and tested with the riders.  
A difficult and complicated project that never saw the light of day - an ultralight full-carbon crank that was ahead of its time.
This was about a two-day project.  Had I known it was going on thousands a bikes for many years - I would have probably have put more time into it - then again it is possibly better done quickly.
