Cruiser drink/beer holder?

Are there any good handlebar holders for my cruiser out there? The Kroozer brand ones look like what I'm looking for but get mixed reviews on Amazon. I'm also looking for a bottle cage for a bike without factory mounts?

Thanks for any input.

I usually just get on ebay and get one of the adapters that lets you put a regular bike water bottle holder on the handlebar. but I guess that would limit the kind of bottle you can use, like I don't use a coffee cup, or a beer/pop can.


(i don't know though. don't drink beer or buy pop in cans, at least when I'm riding around. maybe it would fit)


I always buy the Gatorade that looks like a bike water bottle 'cause I can buy them for a dollar at several dollar type stores (the twist top on them is nice for riding too), or a Mexican soda I like that fits in it also.

Twofish Unlimited these strap on bottle cages go any where,

mounted on the seat tube you can even carry open bottles in them.

Thanks for the replies,

That Twofish one looks good. I was thinking more along the lines of this for my handlebar mounted one though:

Twofish works well for a seat post mounting position. Klickfix bottlefix for a downtube mount, comes with different metal strap lengths to accommodate larger aluminum tubing...cut up a discarded inner tube and use that under the strap to prevent scratching your paint. I use both on my cruiser bikes and they have held up. There are other bottle cage adapters, Topeak, SKS, etc. but have no experience with them.

Plenty of handlebar cage adapters. Get the all metal ones for max durability. Do an Amazon search for Drink Slings. Pretty nice handmade leather drink holder...Seen one basket mounted and she said you can specify what bottle/container you use and the guy will make it to your specs.
