seat post bottle cage for track bike

Wondering if you guys knew of any seat post bottle cages for a 31.8 seat post. What do you use or recommend?

profile design aquarack will work. only thing i didn't like (which isn't really a big deal) is you need to remove the seat post to put it on/take it off.

That's why I like the SKS mount. It adjusts to any size post and its quick release. I have my mini pump and cage mounted on mine...that way I can transfer from bike to bike.

Forgot to add... Plus by using the mount I posted above, it allows me to still use a saddle mounted bag. This means you can carry everything on your seatpost/saddle and keep the clean look on the frame.

Mind you, in the road-cycling world those are known as torpedo launchers because of their tendency to, well... launch.

Which is precisely why mine didn't last a week.

I've had an alright experience with this bottle cage thing. The bolts have sheared/broken off twice, you note that there is a super long bolt where the regular sized one is. My wrench told me that stainless is the way I want to go since road vibrations end up separating the head from the bolt. I've launched bottles from it but have a thick rubber band for some additional friction. I have always meant to swap the bottle cages, but these work for now. There are little accessories to attach threaded co2 and the lyzene mount thing I found lying around at the LBS, the pump didn't come with one.

+1 to the butt rockets.
