    Banshee Spitfire V2 Bottle Cage

    Hey there,

    Been lurking for a while and finally decided to join up. Ive got a v2 spitfire and love it apart from the lack of a bottle cage.

    After I saw a photo of one of the GT team bikes at SamoŽns with a custom bottle mount, I thought I'd give it a shot and do something similar with the Banshee, and I haven't seen any similar posts so I'm sharing this incase anyone else wants to give it a shot.

    I used an old Specialized zee side load bottle cage (Side load is important as obviously there is no room to load a bottle from the end) I cut out the top bolt mount to allow the cables to run underneath. Apart from that I just left it as is and cable tied it on. The bottle is a 550mm HighFive one, that measure 17cm from base to the top of the mouth piece, any bigger wont fit.

    Very cool idea. I saw that photo of the GT on PinkBike as well, but didn't think to apply it. Have you tried it on trails yet (how's the stability?)

    I have a side entry cage on the way, but hadn't figured out what bottle would fit. I know a standard one wont. Perfect timing, thanks!

    Zombie post, but at this point in the game Banshee should have been offering a custom bottle/cage that went is a custom spot like that. (Same as YT does on the jeffsy)
