    No drill bottle bosses

    With the age of longer dropper posts, does anyone make a braze-on no drill bottle boss? I'd like to add a set to my seatpost and make sure that I don't have to drill any extra holes in my frame.

    If it doesn't already exist (I've tried looking) what do you experts and amateurs think would be a minimum bolt length for holding a bottle cage on a frame? I'm considering making something myself and silvering it onto the seat toob.

    Shorten up some rack braze-ons and use them. Or braze a short bolt to the frame and use a nut on top of the cage--some old frames have this.

    You could also do a sort of post mount bottle boss, using some small tube and a standard bottle boss. Braze a 1/2" (or whatever you need) piece of tube at 90 degrees to the seat tube, and put the bottle boss at the end.
