    the saddle-mounted ones would work fine.

    ah yes, the saddle mount, unfortunately I ride a Brooks saddle which won't accomodate the saddle mount...rails flare out more than on most saddles.

    Use hoseclamps and electrical tape. Put a piece of tape around the frame in each place where you're going to clamp (to avoid scratching your paint job), then clamp the cage to the frame. Put a piece of electrical tape over the "slack" in the clamp, too, so that you don't have extra metal strips hanging off your frame (you can filet your thigh very nicely with those -- I can attest!).

    Put a little scrap of inner tube or electrical tape on the frame so the clamp doesn't scratch everything.

    Zip ties, biatch!

    Plus my bottle cage doesn't have "wings" so I have to pass a doubled up spoke across the part of the cage with the screw holes and then tie that to the frame. Extra points for the use of a busted spoke.

    i tried the two fish and found it to be not as secure
    side to side as the hose clamp method.

    i have the profile design saddlemount which
    matches the triathlon thong i wear.

    I forget who makes it, but i've seen a double bottle handlebar mount, very old-school euro.

    Ah yes, it is Minoura.
