Handlebar to Bottle Cage Mount
Our lovely VO bottle cage mount allows you to affix water bottle cages on your handlebars. They are made of extruded aluminum and are intended for city bikes, so they fit bars up to 25.4mm.
(I know some of will want to use them on the 26mm "sleeved" road bars. In that case you'll need to file just a touch off the top edge of the "hinge" section so it opens a liitle wider. Of course, it's no problem to use them on "bulged" road bars.)
So it didn’t fit on my handlebars because there’s not enough room. If I had 1/2” more space, this beautifully machined and finished bit of kit would’ve solved water bottle placement on my daily commuter. You see, I recently converted my 29er to an ebike and With the big battery pack, there’s not any room in the triangle for a bottle and cage. Guess I’ll have to go with a feed-bag type solution.
So now this piece of gear is in my parts drawer waiting for another application on another day.
Velo Orange had prompt shipping and great communication from start to finish.
I found that the rubber strip that was glued to the inside of the clamp, got hot in the heat and slipped. I took them off and cleaned all the glue off and wrapped the bar with Gaffers Tape and installed the clamp over the Gaffers Tape and all is good.
