    Hi everyone, I've just bought a new bike, and I absolutely love it! The only drawback is that there are only two screws (for one bottle cage), and it's the one directly below the seat. I'd like to add another bottle cage, but don't know how to go about doing it as there are no screws. Does anyone know if bike shops can add the screws, or if the manufacturer can do it? Thanks for any responses :smile:

    If there are no screw mounts on your down tube I think I have seen cages that strap on.

    Yup, Decathlon used to sell them. You could also get a mount for mounting a bottle behind your saddle, Triathlon style.

    Bottle cage clamps is one way of doing it. I have these on one of my bikes, works fine.

    Those are what I use. Only £2.99 at Halfrauds thought !
    Depending on the cage you sometimes need a longer bolt that those supplied.
