seat post bottle cage that won't eject
I need to start carrying a second bottle. I bought this topeak cagemount awhile back for my seat post and havn't used it yet: Topeak® Cycling Accessories ? Products - CageMount
whats a cage that won't eject? I've heard specialized rib. also getting one of those metal cages and bending it(heard this will eventually crack bottle). also heard of a cage bontrager makes that has a knob on it that tightens bottle but I can't find it. i dont really want to spend more than $10 so a metal cage may be the only option.
are the side loader cages less prone to ejection?
curious to hear anything here so doing a quick bump - i gave up and just started to run a minimalist hydration pack/camelback, especially with lame bottle clearance on my Epic frame with the rear shock. I lose a ton of fluids. Plus dealing with bottles while redlining it sucks.
But so do packs, no matter how small (heat, adding to back pain, etc)
no an aluminum cage being bent won't crack a water bottle unless you
are using a crappy bottle
best cage/bottle combo are camelbak podium bottles and
a plastic cage like this. Bike24 - Ghost Water Bottle Cage Plastic
that bottle will not come out unless you want it out.
but it needs some vertical clearance. on a seat tube I use aluminum
cages and bend them tight...works great and a normal bike waterbottle
like camelbak will not crack, there is no way they will crack.
Specialized Rib Cage. Gorilla Cage.
I've seen some peeps use a large rubber band (in various fashions) to hold the bottle in the cage. Might be your cheapest/most reliable option.
I've used these for probably over 20 years, there might be better out there by now, but I think I've broken one in all that time and can't ever remember launching a bottle. Granted, I mainly have them on road bikes these days, but in the precamelback era, they were the only cage I found that worked.
