A cup holder for a bike??


Hi every body,

i need a cup holder for bikes but without an upper cover,

instead of the cover, the holder rotates to prevent water slipping during riding...

where can i find like this holder ???

You might find a gimbaled cup holder that you could adapt at a boating store, but I wouldn't bet on how well it's going to work.

Are you talking about those cup holders for motorcycles which swivel on two axis to prevent spillage? For bicycles, your best bet would be standard cycling bottle and cage.... works very well. I've been using this setup for several decades.

Soma cycles sells a cup/ bracket combo that attaches onto handlebars. I'd try the gimballed boating style one and a couple of hose clamps, if you want the ability to slip a variety of beverages into it. But why not just use the water bottle holders? They hold most takeaway coffee cups, and sodas and beers, quite well.

I dunno, I usually just used the vertical bottle mount on my frame, and put my cans/slushies/whatever in that cage. I also made sure to use a flimsy and easily bendable cage for that spot...it might break soon, but it's at least adjustable enough to fit things from a can of pop to a 64oz bedwtter's special.
