Bottle holder?
« on: January 15, 2021, 07:01:07 AM »
anybody found a solution to this that did not include mounting it on the handlebars?

MRI-Denver has a front bottle holder bracket that mounts to the front stem, under the handlebars, using existing threaded holes on the bike, even with a front rack attached.  You can mount right- and left-opening bottle cages to the bracket.  I had to tweak mine a tad to get the holes on the bracket  to line up exactly with the threaded holes on the bike, but it works great.

I got the adjustable one from Gzila. It's bit pricey at $55 but I like it.

I used the following for my water bottle setup and am happy with it:

I really like that that bottle holder since it's far cheaper than others listed. I still think it's kind of ridiculous that these custom parts cost so much.

Someone more talented than me should be able to 3D print one cheaper I would think.

I wonder if ABS plastic would work well for a bottle holder and 3D printing. If I remember correctly some of the plastic on my dirt bike had ABS plastic.

this is an great, inexpensive, nearly indestructible, water bottle cage.

i have installed several on multiple bikes with no issues.

the cage has numerous mounting options using the included velcro strap or the bike's hardpoints.

expandable - i've used up to a 32 oz. iron flask bottle in this bottle cage.
