What can the bosses on the down tube, next to the front wheel, be used for? The only thing I can think of is a mountain bike style mudguard, but I've only seen ones that clip on.
That's where I put my pump, so maybe they're for a pump. It looks like a road morph like I've got or an old fashioned pump would fit there. Most pump brackets will fit bottle cage screws or clamp on directly to the frame so it seems a bit unnecessary.
I was right next to one of these bikes on the train yesterday and there's quite a bit of clearance there.
