Where to put your bike bottle?

Three ultimate mounting options for your bottle holder

You are surely familiar with the problem: you have purchased a new bike and fitted it out with mudguards, a bell and other accessories. But where should you put your bike bottle? There are usually no mounting holes for bottle holders, especially on e-bikes. Many geometries often do not provide an option for mounting a bottle holder.

Especially on bicycle tours in summer temperatures, it is important to take enough water with you to regulate the fluid balance in your body and maintain your performance. So what do you do if the bike frame cannot accommodate a bottle holder? 

Option 1: Anywhere and everywhere

The ANYWHERE mounting system

The SKS bottle holders TOPCAGE and VELOCAGE can be mounted with straps and adapters wherever there are no holes.

Adapters are attached with durable hook and loop fasteners. You can shorten them without any problems. A rubberised surface protects the paint and ensures that nothing will slip even when cycling on rough terrain. Ook compatibel met de SKS bidonhouders DUAL (SC), PURE, SLIDECAGE, WIRE CAGE en SPACECAGE.

Perfect for longer tours or bikepacking adventures: you can take several drinking bottles with you with the ANYWHERE system.

Option 2: Quick and flexible


Once screwed to the adapter, the bottle holder can be mounted and detached in seconds using the proven “quick-release” fastening system. Thanks to the adjustable robust strap, you can mount the holder on the bike seat post, stem or frame. The angle setting ensures optimal alignment of the drinking bottle: the tilt of the bottle cage can be adjusted at the touch of a button.

Option 3: Clever meets smart

The COM/CAGE VELO bottle holder system

What does a mobile phone holder have to do with a bottle holder? A great deal in the case of the COM/CAGE VELO: an adapter connects the bottle holder to the COMPIT smartphone holder. The bike bottle is readily accessible on the handlebars at all times and can be easily removed to take a drink.

Incidentally, the bottle holder can also be used without the COMPIT system for e-bikes with a Bosch drive. Optional adapters are available for mounting on the display.

Last but not least

All three mounting options are a real alternative to models screwed to the frame as they offer further advantages: some cyclists appreciate a clean frame and only want to mount the bottle holder when they need it. The little helpers also allow additional bottles to be mounted on the bike. Finally, the systems also impress on rough terrain with top points for performance.
