    When your bike doen't have bottle cage bosses!

    Been riding like this for two weeks, no problems loosing bottles. Pretty sturdy. I have about $30 in the mount plus cages. Mount is made by Minoura and the cages are cheapo Planet Bike. Bottles, however, are my favorite Camelbak twist tops. So far, so good. Just an idea for those who lack bosses on the frame to mount stuff.

    Is this new technology to you? I'm pretty sure everyone here knows about saddle bottle mounts. Glad you like it though

    Yeah, kinda. Except that people made a big deal over the "butt rocket" TT/Tri bike bottles mounts made of plastic. I found this fully metal contraption and I am pretty happy! No bottles launched into space!!

    old news. Nice Kilo TT Stripper though. The strippers don't have bottle cage mount holes drilled, so I have the Minoura single bottle cage saddle mount but now I use a extender cage mount that attaches to the seatpost.

    I'm doing Sunlite handlebar bottle cages. $5 apiece at the LBS. Not aero, can make parking tricky but easiest bottle grab possible!

    I would much rather drill the frame and install a couple rivnuts, which is exactly how they install bottle cage bosses in the factories. $2 each and you don't even really need a rivet tool to install them.

    Wow, I've never seen handlebar bottle cages. I don't know how you feel but it looks like they'd get annoying up there.

    I have the same Minoura rack, and it was the absolute worst. Lost one bottle broke another from launching them. First two rides with the rack. Maybe you just have nicer roads.

    I love 'em. Tempted to get some for my bikes that have DT and ST holes, even. The aero penalty doesn't bother me much. I dunno why they aren't on more recreational riders's bikes, the drinking is so easy with 'em. They worked fine on the tour 'til aero everything started to matter.

    Their bottles are on the handlebars to remind them to drink more water in their amphetamine-addled states. We should definitely bring back goggles though.

    I use an old Minoura single cage mount on the handlebars of my Gitane, coupled with an old Nitto T model bottle cage.
    Gitane hb.jpg

    I used to use a pair of these cages affixed to Minoura's old double cage mount, which looked a lot more like the vintage cages in the pix above, but that broke on me one fine day on a dirt road in the middle o' nowhere, Abbeville County SC. If I ever found another Minoura double mount for the bars like that one, I would rig an auxiliary bracket from the rear bottom of the cages to a strap around the handlebar stem extension, which was a built-in part on the original ones from way back.

    Handlebar mounted cages make a lot of sense if you are riding on mixed surfaces. They're high enough that you don't get road grit, mud, dirt, horse droppings, etc., sprayed onto them from your front tire, and it leaves the back of the saddle available for Carradice saddlebags ...

    my 2011 Kilo TT Stripper came with bottle cage bosses on the downtube. I guess they don't anymore?

    A little speed, a couple of beers and a cigarrette to take the edge off. Perfect PEDs.

    oh, don't get me wrong, I wear a jersey most of the time when riding, just don't like cramming heavy stuff into the pockets. Usually just carry a phone, a snack and my wallet.

    After using these for a full two weeks, the Minoura setup has its pros and cons. Its worth using.... but not on the Kilo Stripper. I will, however, use this on another bike. I want to keep the Kilo as clean as possible. I have a headlamp, taillight and small computer and that is all I really want on the Kilo.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Best regards - steve
