So why cant your bikes hold bottles. Is it that you dont have bottle mounts or that you can physically get a bottle in.. I have a minimum bottle space but recently discovered side entry bottle carriers that get over the entry problem so to speak..

Interesting.  Mine takes a bottle but its mounted under the downtube so isn't very accessible and gets very mucky.  Do you have a link / pic of what you mean?

I have a rear shock in the way. I could mount one down in front of the BB if I modified a hole on a cage but I wouldnt be able to reach it, it would be covered in muck, I have a camelbak....

No Steve, I raced with gels but mudmonkey handed me half a small bottle of drink on the last lap which I promptly threw into the undergrowth when my rear tube exploded but I think I would have been fine with another gel anyway

Mines on the downtube too just in front of the BB. So right in line of all the crap thrown up by the front wheel.... Lovely :X  Would also mean i couldn't run a crud catcher, which aint going to happen. The bottles do come in very handy for powdered drinks though.

swear i saw a bottle cage that could be mounted to the seat post ... maybe you could make it forward facing to avoid all the crap ... obviously it would work best for people like andy who run eifel towers as seatposts due to more clearence

something like this : but with a shorter reach on the mount <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.nationalcycles.co.uk/seatpost-bottle-cage-mount.html">http://www.nationalcycles.co.uk/seatpos ... mount.html</a><!-- m -->

Before i got this frame i used to have a 700ml bottle with the energy drink in and 2-3ltrs in the camelback. I miss being able to do this as drinking 3ltrs of SIS on every ride is not only expensive but once warm is disgusting, so was good to drink just water when i wanted to. I'm gonna look into mounting one on the seatpost i think for longer rides.

well obviously you would end up with half of your bottles strewn across the track ... and mud in them, but if its that or no water im sure i could put up with something like that  ??) Big Grin luckily ive got a small tiny camelbak though  ;D
