why this warning label on bottle cage ?
 
I bought an origin 8 behind the saddle double bottle cage holder, and another profile design axis bottle cage to go with the one I already had, and was going to put both profile design axis cages behind my saddle.

then I noticed the profile design axis bottle cage had one sticker on it tat reads "Mount kage ONLY on frame of bike. Do not use behind saddle"

anyone know why this would be discouraged?

The plastic around the mounting bolts may not be thick enough for the upright mounting position. That is just a guess however.

They have another cage that is the Profile original design .. get those for that location.
