Bottle cage that fits the Camelbak Better Bottle (.75L)???

Does one exist? If I want to keep my bottle, should I just get a metal cage and "persuade" it to fit the bottle? Should I just bit the bullet and get new bottles that will fit easier?

Topeak makes an adjustable bottle cage that may work.

I don't understand the question.

I bought a few camelback water bottles a few weeks ago. I just stick them in the same metal water bottle cages we've been using for years. They fit fine. Until your post I never would have thought there could be a problem.

'Bout the triplets. They born yet or just on the way? We've a set of 8 year old boys in our family and are expecting a set of girls in late July or early August. I'm just the grandad so my responsibility is pretty limited.

Pikestar: I'm at work now and (almost) anything fun is blocked.. I'll have to check it out tonight.

Travelmama: I have since found that and it looks like it will be my best bet

Retro Grouch: The .75 better bottle is more for hiking, but I already own several. It is larger around than most bike specific bottles. The podium on the other hand would fit with no problem.

The triplets are almost 15 months now... all girls... yep, I'm screwed. JK. They are the light of my world and one of the reasons I'm getting back into bikes. I want to be a role model to them as far as diet and excersize. I don't want to raise them as couch potatoes (like I was). I'll be pulling a trailer and momma will have a kangaroo seat. Should be great fun! Congrats on your multiple multiple grandchildren!
