    Water Bottle Cage Solution for 2012 Blur LT

    One of the only real criticisms of my Blur is the absence of a water bottle location. During the summer I always wear a Camelbak since I can easily go through 2L in a normal ride. However, as the weather gets cooler I don't really need quite so much. Ideally I'd like to fit at least one on the bike somewhere and one in my jersey pocket. What solutions have people come up with on the Blur?

    I've seen the ones that mount behind the seatpost, but those seem like they'd be in the way once the trail points downward.

    Mounted behind the seat.
    Profile design makes them single or dual. I use the single one for short rides. I have the same problem with my khs.
    I tried the seat mounted but i would get paranoid that the rear tire would hit it.
    You just need a bottle that has a cover on the spout. I tried the handlebar mount but too geeky.

    does that interfere with getting back behind the saddle? I have a few steps and drops on my trails where I'm almost laying on the saddle.

    I know what you mean, my shorts got snag by the tip I the bottle even if the post was down. My solution was jut to use a small bottle not the tall ones.

    Hum... One of the first time I've seen the QR lever on the mech side. Any reasoning or just some wanting to be different angst?
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    I had the same dilemna with my nomadc in that I want to go out for a ride where it is cooler and don't needs buckets of water to drink.

    My solution is to just stick the water bottle in the jersery pocket on my back.

    That was taken a long time ago. When I used to pull a kid trailer, the qr lever interferes with the trailer attachment.

    I have a SKS strap on cage holder for instances I need some spare fluids.

    I know some people who mount the QR on driveside since they fear a rotor burn if they have to change a flat after a long downhill.
