    Cages for 32 oz bottles

    Has anyone ever found a bottle cage that can carry a 32 oz bottle (like the nalgene bottles)? Are there larger cages available than the standard size?

    nothing available commercially to fit standard Nalgene's that I have found, The new slim flip top Nalgenes do fit a standard cage. Minoura makes a cage that will fit the slim 1 liter Evian or Perrier water bottles. T

    I bought this Copper Canyon Bottle holder in a PX in Heidelberg in about 1999 or so for $5. Holds a 1.5 liter bottle perfectly. It can also hold a 2 liter soda pop bottle but that is too difficult for me to handle with just one hand while cycling.

    Thanks. I just checked out the new slim nalgenes with the flip top. They look nice and it says they fit in bike cages. I like that they have a spout that I won't have to unscrew too. I have a habit of dropping my water bottles. I was thinking since nalgenes are indestructible, it would be more cost effective than replacing my cheap bottles.

    I like Nalgenes, but they're not indestructible.

    Topeak makes a super size cage that's adjustable. What fits and how well, I don't know.

    I've found the CatCage to be a fairly flexible (pun) cage. The aluminum construction allows you to bend it open a bit more to facilitate holding large bottles like the big 32oz Gatorade squeeze models.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
