    Would this Water Bottle be way too huge for a normal bottle cage?

    Am I trippin thinking this bottle would work on a bike in a normal bottle cage? Or would it be so long and heavy it would just flop right out?

    It probably would work, especially if it is not filled all the way. If your ride starts easy and you start emptying it, it should be fine.

    I have some tall bottles. Under normal XC riding conditions, they stay put. In a crash, they don't call it a "yard sale" for nothing.

    Riding aggressively? use something else.

    Frame design would play a part as well.

    Downtube mount, which is why I'm buying one of these bottles, the nipple has a cover that flips up and down, to keep crud off of it

    Depends on your bottle cage. Many have trouble holding a normal small bike bottle securely.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    The small bottle (22 oz) will work fine. I believe my bottles are 20 oz and they stay put in all sorts of rocky, bumpy conditions.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    All depends on your trails and where you live.

    I would not use a DT mount bottle cage for a bottle cage. My bike has a mount there, and it gets used for a downtube fender for splatter.
