Bottle Cage Mounting Issue
I recently bought a cage for my new road bike that doesn't come with hex wrench holes. My problem is that once I installed the cage on my down tube, the tightness of the bolts were choking the gear cables and I couldn't shift properly. Any advice on how to mount it so it doesn't do that, given as well that I already have my U-lock bracket on the seat tube, so that there isn't enough room to put the two on it? Thanks.

Google "Zefal Gizmo" . This is a bottle cage mounting system that uses plastic straps that should be thin enough to fit between your frame and shift cables.

^ Yeah, this. You're not supposed to strap or bolt anything on top of the cables.
