    Soft/Smashable Water Bottle Cage?

    Is there such thing as a soft water bottle cage that can get smashed if I hang my bike on my truck tailgate? My only mounting point in the contact point. Was wondering if there's a silicone one or something? I haven't been able to find one.

    None that I'm aware of and I have trouble envisioning how something like that would work. There are a few bottle/mount systems you might investigate which have a flat(ish) mount that the bottle clips onto which might work.
    What, me worry?

    If you can sew, use the base off an old cage. Then make a loop with 1 nylon strap. Then sew on another 1 strap to the loop to keep the bottle from going through. Think of the shape of a thong. (Best way I could describe it lol)

    Or get a TwoFish bottle cage mount. It can be used to mount a cage just about anywhere a bottle can fit.

    There are also strap on bottle cages (Walmart or Canadian Tire) that you could just remove when transporting your bike.

    I've been using Fidlock bottles featuring a magnetic lock-on system for a couple years now. They're expensive and awesome. I recommend.
