    Bottle Mount - Riot

    Managed to blow out my bottle mount braze-ons the 2nd day I had my Riot. The screws just spin and spin and spin.

    SO. Thinking alternatively months later, looking to hear if anyone has thrown an alternative style bottle mount (strap style) inside the front triangle successfully. I don't need to run a big bottle this would only be for short rides to avoid using a pack.

    I had this happen to me as well. I used an impact drill which spun the bolt faster then the nut could which allowed me to get it out, then I just gorilla glued around nut and frame bolted new bottle holder to it and well hopefully never have to touch agian.

    A bigger shop will have a rivnut tool - they can essentially reset the existing rivnut in your frame. I did it several times back in my shop rat days.
