    When I did 24 hr races the promoter required bottle mounted batteries have an auxiliary strap or tape to guarantee they would not pop out of a cage. Seems they had a bad OTB crash from a battery popping out and getting caught in between the spokes. Of course batteries were very heavy then compared to now.

    Where do you mount your battery pack?

    I use Niterider Lumina all in one piece no need to mount extra batteries

    Here is mine. The strap from Backcountry Research works KILLER for this application...v. secure. I have a GeoMan battery and the base is contoured to fit round top tubes; mine is more square and even then, it doesn't move. Before I was using the Backcountry strap, the battery came with a generic velcro strap that allowed the battery to rotate around the tube; the Backcountry strap has a rubberized backing that prevents movement and grips the tube securely.

    Thanks for the direction to Backcountry Research, have been searching for a while now to find a durable velcro strap that holds a few bits and bobs onto top tube!

    You won't be disappointed. I use their "Race II" strap to hold my tube/lever/CO2 under my seat. Great products..love supporting innovation by small US businesses!

    I made a carbon fibre bracket to strap mine to the down tube waterbottle fittings.
