Cuissi cages, with the additional side buttons for greater security, or any of the various knockoffs available from REI or etc that have the side buttons on the cages for better retention of bottle.
side loading below the downtube? no thanks, the bottle would be more likely to fall or get knocked out.
If you need to grab the bottom bottle, stop and grab it. you're not racing on tour, for gosh sakes.
Often my fuel bottle resides in the bottom cage, versus water. I've got bottle cages attached to each side of the front rack on my heavy tourer.
I usually roll with four bottles, and fuel in the fifth cage under the downtube.
