    Cup holder for my lwb

    Not quit-so-newby has decided, after 250 miles on his new Tour Easy, that he want a cup holder for his coffee. Found this on a motocycle site, but was wondering if any of you knows of something better for a bent.

    I often start a ride carrying a Starbucks in my left hand, and then put the empty in the center position of my 3 water-bottle cages.

    Here's a holder that might work: http://www.toplinemfg.com/html/bike-barhopper.html . It might work on the crossbar of your Tour Easy's handlebar if it's the latest version.

    I'd probably put a Liquid Caddy on the ape hangers. It swivels on two axes so it works fine on vertical bars also. Well I guess Easy Tour apehangers have approx 45 "verticals", but the Liquid Caddy can accommodate that also. I reckon on the bends would be the best location for the shortest reach, if the clamps can handle those tight bends. Maybe a trip to the hardware store for longer screws can make the clamps handle the bends.

    Ordered. I check out all recommended, plus some others. This seemed the simplest, most solidly constructed. Strange that it came from a truck accessory company.

    Y'know, truckers don't get enough respect. When I'm driving, I'll let 'em merge in front of me when they signal. They'll flash their lights as a "thank you". I figure they're bigger than me, so I might as well avoid getting squished.

    And here it is, installed upside down. It's slightly tappered. I'll fix that. Stainless rim on a solid mount. 5 stars.

    Looking at the background of your picture, my guess is that you tested your cup holder on the toughest road you could find, or is that what you are used to riding on?

    Coincidently Grumpybear, I pedaled down a Texas oilroad yesterday. Very bumpy. In spite of how well my TE absorbs the bumps, a bit of coffee did escape from the small sip hole in the lid. The wind on a down hill did blow the empty cup out of the holder. Minor issues considering its utility.
