Dual water bottle cages

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Dual water bottle cages

I tried searching, but did not come up with much. Are there any dual water bottle cages that use a seat post mount? I know profile design makes one, but any other companies?

More like water bottle ejector racks. Please don't use these on a group ride.

Yeah there's no point to not using regular cages on your bike.

To help your search, I normally hear them called "saddle mount" or "rear mount".

Thanks for your thoughts guys. My bicycle is currently not drilled for cages and I would rather not have to do it. Are there any options that you know of where you do not have to drill into the frame?

Ratcheting hold down straps.



These will support 10,000 lbs.

That's what I use mine for. I can't ride for even 2 hours with less than 3 24oz bottles. I use the 4th bottle for fuel.

I do this all the time. In certain places in the Colorado mountains, it's hard to find a place to fill up your bottles without finding the closet stream.

For the record, I've used the profile design one.

I have the Profile Design model. It is exactly this. Now if I need to carry more than two bottles, I put the extras in my jersey pockets.

It's called the two fish water bottle cage. You can velcro it to the down tube or seat tube.

I have a black anodized Tremble dual-cage bottle mount that clamps to the back if the saddle rails. I'll sell it to you CHEAP for the cost of Fed-Ex Econo shipping (and my trouble to box it up) if you're interested. Email me at ciocc_cat@yahoo.com for info.

if your bike is standard size steel 1" or so you need these Zefal Gizmos. they work pretty well. I used them in past on one of my bikes.

just be careful don't accidently get the "air" Gizmo for CO2 cartridges.

Yes, but you're obiously a very smooth fixie rider!

Just my personal experience, everytime I've ridden in a group with people using those things they launch out like crazy, sending people all over the place dodging or smashing them. The only exception to this I've seen was a guy who locked his down with a bungie or some other type of strap. Sure not all of them launch everytime, but enough do that I'm tempted to pull them out myself and toss em in the weeds.

Is it because you don't want to spoil the lines of the bike? I'm toying with the idea of traditional bar mounted ones. I can't see that they'd do anything to affect the swing weight of the bars (given that they mount within the triangle of hands and steerer tube). I'll probably have changed my mind by the time I press the 'Post Quick Reply' button, but it's just a thought.
