    1 liter water bottles/cages

    Is anyone aware of a water bottle cage that will accept a traditional 1 liter nalgene water bottle?

    Alternatively, is anyone aware of any 1 liter sized water bottles that would fit a standard cage?

    Thanks

    nope, never seen one of those. Personally I dont like to mount the cages to the bike. I prefer a camelbak or some other brand of hydration backpack. They are more of a multi-tasker (can add food, tools, etc) whereas the cage can only hold a bottle (I suppose you could put food, tools, etc in an empty bottle!!!)

    I've never seen anything that can hold a Nalgene. However, Topeak does make a few adjustable cages that can hold larger or smaller bottles, depending on your needs:

    Never needed more than a 28oz bottle in a cage, but a quick google got this http://www.comcycle-usa.com/ProductInfo.aspx?id=1792439

    I have a couple of those bottles. I don't use them anymore (re: CamelBak), but they hold a ton of water.

    BTW, I thought your name was Bikinifoolferlife until about 30 seconds ago.

    Wow, those are pretty hip, and only $5 a pop. I may have to pick a couple up. I like to put my energy drinks in a bottle to keep my C-bak fresh, so these are just the ticket.

    Thanks!

    While I probably am a bikinifoolferlife, had never thought of that slight difference. I'm a hydration pack guy all the way on my mountain bike, still use water bottles on my road bike, though...

    I have used 1 liter plastic soda bottles in the past in a normal cage.

    I think that it is always a good idea to carry a backpack as opposed to carrying it all in the cage. For one, I never liked the rattling that they made and then half the time, they kept falling out and so I had to stop each time and pick them up. Backpacks are much more effective.

    I had the same problem once. I was riding through the local singletrack, and passed a giant group of Jr. High kids that were out on a field trip. I was about 100' beyond them, when I hard a few of them yelling something at me. Damn kids, who need 'em? Just a bunch of foul-mouthed punks!

    Well, it turns out they were trying to get my attention after I hit some rocks and lost my only bottle. I was easily a couple miles away from there before I realized what happened.
