What do you think!
Below is a picture of the pump mounted under the floor. ( picture is upside-down )
Thanks! Joe
Honestly, I see no advantage to running a reservoir. Like you said, it'll maybe get you an extra application or two before cycling- but it's not going to make any difference in the brake system performance as I'm sure you know. I'd save my money.
