    suggestion on how to mount 2nd water bottle on bike

    I have one bottle holder, but there are no holes to install another one, would like to hear suggestions and see some pictures of how some people have installed a second water bottle.

    and NO, i don't want to wear a camelbak on my back.

    I do at least 30 mile rides or longer, so i need at least two water bottles to keep me hydrated on the way, before i am able to refill again.

    Thank You

    On the front of the seat tube. Protect the top tube.

    Fabricate a T bracket and you can mount 2 back to back, Standing Upright, right where that one is..

    Rack is there... 2 panniers .. balance.. and put a bladder bag in each .. Ought to be good for a couple Gallons.

    Wine comes in 5 Liter boxes so the Bag is free when you finish the Vino in them.

    I've used something like THIS in the past, but on a seat tube mount .. it'll affect your step over height some, but is an easy option..

    oh, hell's yeah.

    combine two of these with the velocity SPT and you are rocking 4 damn water bottles from your seatpost.

    Twofish strap-on bottle cages

    I have tried three types of the Twofish strap-on bottle cages. They all use a shaped rubber block and a Velcro strap.

    . 1) The Quick Cage comes with a standard water bottle cage built in
    . 2) The Quick Cage Adapter is just a rubber mount with a strap and you provide the bottle cage you want to use
    . 3) The Quick Cage Adapter XL is the same as #2 but with a really long strap. The strap is long enough to mount on the very large top tubes that some folding bikes have.

    So you could mount bottles to both sides of your seat post, top tube, and/or handle post. Here is my usual setup with two Quick Cage Adapters on my handle post. I can leave these in place when I fold my bike.

    hmm. this explains a lot.

    a few days ago i was on the phone with my gf. reception wasn't great. i was about to go into the subway when she said something about bringing home two fish and a strap-on. then the line went dead. needless-to-say, i had a long, quiet subway ride of self-reflection. when i got home, she didn't mention it again and i certainly didn't bring it up. but, now that you have brought this to my attention, it all makes sense.

    thanks.

    Quick release water bottle cage: Bicycle Bike Cycling Universal Water Bottle Cage Rack Holder Mount Quick Release | eBay

    You can clamp it on seat post or steering post or handlebar, and remove it when it's in the way (such as when bike is folded) just by flipping open the quick release lever. The direction of the cage can be rotated so it mounts to a horizontal tube or vertical tube.

    Exactly what I use on my folder too.

    Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.
