    Preferred mounting position for TriNewt battery

    What is your preferred mounting position for the TriNewt battery?

    I just mounted mine for the first time today and it appears that the most logical mounting position is on top of the top tube towards the head tube.

    One problem with my current mounting position is that I can thread the strap under the cables once but then I have to pull the strap over the cables on the second wrap because the velcro gets caught if I try to thread the strap under the cables on the second wrap.

    The top of the down tube might be a good place to mount the battery but it would make it a problem for me to get my water bottle in and out of the cage.

    Under the top tube for me. I like to put it back towards the seattube... as far as the cord allows.

    Idea! Use a couple of waterbottles to make it work in a cage...

    You could make it work in a waterbottle cage... like I did.



    Here's the photoset on flickr I did explaining how I did it.
