Where can i get a dual water bottle cage for behind the seat?

I only found the profile design one but am looking for others to consider. this will be for summer time but now that it's winter the prices may be lower. I think they are really cool. http://www.profile-design.com/2006_p.../aquarack.html. are the cages removable?

I have a profile rack, it works fine. The X-lab racks are nice but really pricey, I can't really tell you anything about the others.

If u use the big tall bottles they will sling em a mile in a sprint outta the saddle. Big rubber bands do the trick.

minoura makes a bracket that attaches onto your seat rails.

I have this, as my cervelo is a weird aeroseatpost thing going on, and the profile cages would never fit it.

Allinall, I think it's pretty decent considering the price. Holds my h2o, and stays out of the way.

if you get the profile design get yourself some loctite and apply it to all the bolt threads. they tend to come loose very easily, but i haven't had a problem since i loctited them.

My late 80's minoura has lost the ability to keep the bottles up. Anybody heard good or bad about the Velocity's version of the seat mount cage holder?

I'll check but it is a green plastic. I lost about 5 bottles before I just started using it for 2 bottles that store my gear so I can tape them into place and wrap spare tubes around em.

Performance used to make a dual bottle rack that attached to the seat rails. It's a bit heavy, but it works really well if you can find one. (I checked their site, and I guess they don't make them any longer.)

If you can wait, they usually show up on Nashbar. aeBike usually has them also.

Never had problems with mine.
