    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.
