    bottle holder ..

    Hey all:

    I wasn't sure where to post this! So I'm sorry if I did so in the wrong place.

    I have an older bike, which doesn't have the standard solid top tube or back tube with screws in which to put a water bottle holder. The top bar is actually two thin bars which run parallel with each other. I typically have been keeping my bottle in my back jersey pocket, but at times I wish to have a second bottle with me and have nowhere to keep it.

    I went to my local shop the other day and told the shop keeper my dilemma and he recommended that I use a velcro holder the shop carried. It was $20 and did not look too secure. Does anyone have any other suggestions as to what i could use?

    Thanks a bunch.

    Get a pair of screw-type hose clamps at the auto parts store and an ordinary metal water bottle cage at the bike shop.

    Put one on the handlebars, just like they did in the old days:
