    two bolts under frame?

    what are the two bolts under the frame about 6" up from the bottom bracket? my FSRXC frame has them too and I can't figure out what I'd possibly mount under there.

    They're a great place to bolt NiHM batteries too if you fancy running a set of lights.

    Biking takes on a whole new element at night. You may not actually be going any faster, but it sure feels like you are!

    don't take this the wrong way, I do appreciate the responses. But if water bottles, mud flaps and batteries are in fact the intended purpose the vast majority of us will never touch those bolts. so, why make it standard? seems like a complete waste.

    by the way, I went on a night ride at Pedros Fest this year. Sigma Sport was demoing their headlamp system. What a rush. I totally agree, it adds a whole new excitement to the trails you could do with no hands during the day.

    Because if they didn't somebody would complain about it.

    Also, I love my Jet Lites Phantom. Very bright.

    Bolts

    I'm not sure about nobody using the bottle mounts. At this time of year everyone seems to have a mudguard bolted to their downtube.

    Um they are there because if the bosses for them were not instaled at the time of manufature there would be no way to install them after the fact for thoes of us who need them.

    Do a race weekend some time you will see first hand what people use them for.

    Most hand pumps come with a bracket that installs on there so you can take your pump with you.

    ok, so maybe on an XC bike...put them there in case someone wants them. but a Demo 9 with a water bottle cage!? ha, might as well put some stock mounts for a basket and tassels.
