Bottle Cages

Haven't found a matching topic ...

Heres mine: 2x 0.75 liters = 1.5 liters of water. I don't hit them with my legs nor feel the weight or the splashing of the water while riding. I would not like to have this weight on my shoulders. So I can always ride without rucksack. And I can easily reach the bottles while riding.

bottle cages: 2x Elite Custom Race Soft touch
adapter: M-Wave bottle cage adapter 1 to 2
clamps: KCNC bottle cage clamps 31.6mm (ground to 31.8mm)

This looks very nice!

I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to make something like this work with a caliper rim brake though. There's not much space under the seat on a 36er, so I think it would take short bottles to fit above the caliper and below the seat, or else have a space to offset them behind the brake.

When I first thought about the problem I'd been thinking of putting one projecting horizontally off the back of the seat tube securely stapped into a dismount-to-access holder with a stay up to the saddle's rear bumper bolts. But that was just the goal of carrying, not access while riding.

With the KCNC bottle cage clamps came spacers that would allow mounting the bottle cage about 2cm further away from the frame. Maybe such a solution would work for you. then the bottle could sit behind the brake

To add some links:
M-Wave 2 Bike Bottle Cage Adapter
KCNC Seatpost bottle cage clamp
Elite custom Race Bottle Cage

The Elite cages have the advantae that you don't have to pull out the bottle straigt to the top (which is not possible under the saddle) but under an angle.

Clever solution for those who don't want to wear a camelback.

I'm not sure it would work for a 36er though, not because of the magura rim brakes but because the wheel is much bigger than a 27.5".

I notice you don't have the handlebar that goes through the seatshandle anymore, you didn't like it?

I absolutely love it! It's still on my uni and i never removed it. Maybe the point of view on those photos is bad for seeing the handle.

With this handle I can hillclimb much better than with the standard plastic handle. Control on the trail is fantastic and it never hit me on an UPD. Im' thinking of getting the same thin for my other uni too.

For a ghetto solution, I've had one of these on both my unis: https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Bikes-Cyc...le+bottle+cage

On the 29er it fit under the saddle great, but on the 36er the seatpost was too low so I couldn't get the bottle in, so I mounted it on the handlebar instead.

I actually took it off my 36er because I bailed and smashed the bottle up on the ground a few too many times, and so I stick to the Camelback now!
