Water bottle for Brompton

Can anyone give me a suggestion for a water bottle cage/holder for Brompton? I saw a cage from Monkii, but would rather buy in the USA if possible. Thanks in advance.

Brompton should come up with an in house water bottle holder. They have 3 choices for lights, why not at least one water bottle holder.

I just use a back pocket on one of the front Bags..

Want something made in USA get a King cage , then hire a frame builder to make a custom mount.

or buy one for adapting it to HB mount..
[it will obviously be upside down and stick out when the bar folds down]


FWIW having an O bag, they use the same mounts as their add on pockets,
Ortlieb also makes an Add on waterbottle cage..

more work for the 'you-guys-should' committee..
