    Rip 9 bottle cage options

    I have a size medium 2014 rip 9 and was wondering if I use a regular bottle cage can I still get the water bottle out? My fuel 29 would only support a side swipe style cage. I found a nice carbon cage that I would have to order.

    I have a medium Rip9 RDO and I'm assuming the dimensions are either identical or very close. I went with an Arundel side loader and it works well. I tried fitting a typical cage bottle holder on when I first got the frame and the clearance was too tight for my camelbak bottles. A smaller bottle might fit ok but the 21oz bottles were a no go.
