I prefer to run my bottles:

  1. On a frame behind my seat

    as I get more into racing I have been noticing more riders running their bottles behind their seat on a frame. After giving it a try and spending the majority of the down hill trying to get my bottle back in I thought I'd reach out and get your opinions.

    Who runs their bottles behind the seat rather than on the frame?

    Years ago I would run a double cage behind the seat and a single on the down tube. Profile Designs has an easy access seat post cage.

    Fuck bottles unless you're enthusiastic about consuming mud and dog shit.
