    Bottle Cage Option for 15.5" Lush SL 29?

    My wife has been really loving her 2013 Lush SL 29. The only draw back has been the lack of a bottle cage mount. Pulling out the Camelbak for short 1 hour rides has been a bit of a pain.

    Is anyone aware of a work around?

    A search on the forums didn't reveal anything obvious to me.

    I assume you can't fit one in the tightly curved frame, it's quite tight on my ex29 as well, and the lush does appear to be a more compact triangle. You could try a stem cap mount, which will allow you to mount a traditional bottle cage to it

    Quick google search picked that up, I don't know if there's a better deal or better product out there, it's just an example. There's also that water bladder thing that mounts under the seat, but I assume that's less convenient than a camelbak anyway.
    Not sure if that's any help at all, but good luck either way!

    l got the Bontrager Satellite Elite Sideswipe carbon bottle cage from Ebay for my wife's Lush. Bontrager also makes a cheaper aluminum version of the sideswipe bottle cage.

    I realized I left a crucial component out - how did you mount it? There appears to be no bottle cage mounts?

    Thanks for the responses thus far.

    If there are no bottle mounts....then more than likely, a cage will not fit in there.....at all.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.
