Brompton water bottle cage
 
Bought a good water bottle cage carrier combo over the weekend. I haven't tried it with a full water bottle yet, but the setup does not wiggle/rotate.

This is a Giant brand handlebar cage clip. $6 from LBS.

To that, I have mounted a Novara brand water bottle cage that matches my raw lacquer quite well! :thumb: I forget, but I think it was $12 from the store that sells the Novara brand (in case I'm not allowed to name it in the forums).

How do you like the location of the water bottle?

It's the same as the upcoming Brompton/Vincero magnetic bottle mounts.

I haven't had a chance to ride with it. However, during my search/research for Brompton water bottle cage locations, this was my first choice of location. Second choice was steering mast.

I found my C bag pocket to be too low for me...my Mini O-bag doesn't have a pocket. I wanted an "always accessible" location. Hopefully, this works when I'm actually riding.

the mini O is based on their handlebar bag so it wouldn't have the space on the back the Big O bag does ..

the Larger external add on pocket I got for my O bag has room for a Liter bottle , inside .

A store bought bottle of water, if you wish .

the small add on ones will take a short half liter.

add on pockets bought separately come with the mounting hardware

and perhaps you can fix them to the side of the mini O bag
there is an add on bottle cage as well as the pockets..

and have the bottle cage on the bag and not the bike, so the fold is unchanged.
