Adding Water Bottle Mounts to Carbon Frame
Hi Forum! Newbie here. I got t-boned by a car while riding my Bianchi Carbon Concept cross bike. I survived, the bike not so much. Anyhow, now it's time to replace it. One of my options is a gently used Van Dessel Full Tilt Boogie frame / fork that I would build up. I ride more dirt roads / races than cross — though I do both — so I could really use some water bottles. I talked to the Van Dessel guys and they said any good bike shop can add braze ons (rivet ons?). Is that true? If not, where should I start looking?
Second, my other option is a new Ibis Hakkalugi. Really like the bike but am a little put off by the absence of a BB30. Should that even be a concern?
Thanks for your help.
