Profile Design Cages

For those of you using the Profile Design water bottle cages that attach to your seta post under and behind your saddle, are yours pretty tight, forcing you to apply some force to get bottles in and out? Is there a way to adjust that, or is the there to hold the bottles in place?

Secondly, I used to have a small bag in this postion but now I can no longer fit both, what have you done with your bag? Are there any other good locations to strap it to the bike?

You can probably fit a smaller seatbag in between your saddle and the aquarack. As for the force, yeah it's to keep the bottles from going into space when you hit a bump. More likely to happen with the bottles in that position.

One time I used it when I rode in Yosemite, I kept all the stuff that usually is in a seatback was in my pockets. Taking out bottles wasn't a problem.

get rid of the rubber band around the top circle of the cage.

as far as your bag - out the cages on the down & seat tube, and leave the bag under the saddle.

problem solved.
