Interesting dual water bottle holder

I'm thinking it would need to be a small bottle up top.

And in the pic's application, I'm not sure I get the point with a second set of bottle braze-ons there on the ST. Though I have plenty of bikes with just one set - maybe I need to give it a try.

I dunno, I think it should work if you are pretty agile with you fingers when pulling the bottles out.
I do suspect that the designer was smart enough to make that double decker bracket out if steel so it is stiff and strong enough??

On this bike, at least 60 minutes should've been spent to fabricate a custom bracket to secure the upperdecker cage to the unused bottle holder bolts for completeness of inefficiency.

@Riveting agree with that. I would be concerned full bottles could brake mounts without the brace. It feels pretty sturdy so far. The pink is plastic but that other mount seems to hold strong.

A decent idea. High reach bottle and not having to stretch to seat tube.

I'm just looking at those two lonely seat tube bottle bosses and thinking, "the horror, the horror..."

I think it'd be better off to make something along the lines of the wolftooth b-rad... could probably fit 2 bottle holders on the downtube if you don't want to use the seat tube mounts.

I haven't seen that set-up before. It looks like someone made it up for themselves and that it wasn't a marketed product. I agree that it seems to be structurally weak, especially for the outboard holder.

But here is a photo showing a dual water bottle holder that was standard on early Slingshots. This is my 1991 Slingshot mtb after I returned home from auction several years ago.
Of course, you can see the reason why this was a seat tube-mounted structure. ;-) If memory serves, Camelbak or similar systems weren't available or in widespread use yet.

These are on ebay and work just fine after 2-3 years or more.

And there is still room for the other cage too.

I thin some thing like "LongBow" instead of Slingshot would have been more appropriate!
