    water bottle cage?

    Looking for a water bottle cage for my large 2012 5-spot for short mid day rides so I don't have to carry my heavy pack. wondering if there are any that are easy to remove (snap in and out like a garmin mount) where the mount stays bolted but the cage can snap on and off? also wondering how it will work with the cable routing clips on the bottle cage bolt?

    thanks for your help and pictures would be appreciated.......

    I did try to use it in my Flux, the derraileur and brake cable wouldn't let me clip the bottle in and out easily, so, I gave to a friend.

    Is there a reason you really need to remove the cage? It's not like a lightweight carbon fiber or alloy cages weight that much. And re-route the cable with zip-tie? Seat mounted bottle cage?

    just thought it would be cool on those quick rides to be able to snap one in and out real fast..mostly don't like the looks and was hoping there was one that played well with the cable routing, thanks for the replies though......
