    New question here. profile design seatpost 2-bottle holder?

    Not sure if this has been asked here but I was wondering if anyone uses this for endurance and if it is a good/secure mount?

    I have back issues and would like to find a solution so I don't have to use a hydration pack
    I figured that using this plus another 2 bottles in top/bottom tube would give enough water to make it to the next aid station
    Thanks and cheers

    I did, once...

    Classic error, I threw one on just before a race and then discovered quite how high my back wheel comes up under suspension as they smacked together repeatedly. To cap it all my minitool went AWOL so I did a 20+ mile lap before being able to shed it...

    That said if you race an HT or have enough clearance it might work very well.

    I used it a few times on self-supported long rides and thought it worked well until I lost a bottle with it and didn't notice until 10 miles later . I guess you could secure it better with a strap or velcro but then it may get a hassle to take them out - this is a bit precarious anyway when you're on twisty or techy singletrack; therefore I would recommend it only to carry bottles - then swap out when the bottles on the tube are empty.

    I used them in triathlon and even on something like a railroad crossing they would eject bottles. The plastic Profile cages do help a lot as they hold the bottle fairly tight though.
