    Creative Women's Bottle Design?

    Looking for creative alternative to water bottle mount on woman's Giant Cypress. The bike seems to fit my wife well but with the bottle rack, she seems to bruise her leg(s) sometimes. Any other options? Other than a camelback?

    Yeah, if the handlebar area of her bike is not overly crowded, a handlebar mounted cage is a pretty easy way to go, if you want to check out something like that. Such cages are fairly readily available if you know they're out there to look for. I ended up doing that for my little girl's bike, too, and it gave her easy access to a water bottle on her 16-inch bike. It probably would have been much more difficult to find a spot for a water bottle on her bike without going the handlebar route.
