    Anybody add a 2nd water bottle mount to a flux?

    My ONE peeve with the flux is that it doesn't have a bottle mount below the down tube...I like to run 2 cages for XC racing.

    I think I can rig one with zip ties and maybe some rubber or cork to protect the finish of the frame...anyone do anything similar? Any ideas would be appreicated.

    Drill away

    Any good shop should have a riv nut installer and a some inserts. measure twice and drill once. I recomend putting it lower than the present location for a lower CG. Watch carefully as the insert is tightened so that the tubing is not distorted to badly when the insert is reaching max compression.

    Dave, Can this be done for Crud Catcher bosses as well? I have the rivnut gear to do it but was reluctant to do it in case it voided my warranty. I hate having to use bungees or zip ties, it looks rubbish and rubs the frame if it gets knocked. I work for a UK manufacturer and we fit them to our frames and know what I am doing. Is this a goer?
    Cheers in advance,
    Ed
