'Secure' water bottle holder

Postby RickM » Tue Mar 07, 2017 5:27 am

Hi all,

Can anybody recommend a particular water bottle holder which holds the bottle securely? When I said 'securely', I mean the bottle wont fall out when i.e. jumping over a curb.

Where I live I only have 2 bicycle stores nearby, 1 had only 2 different holders available (for a price I can buy a cheap one with new bottle twice every year and pay the same), the other one only had 'regular' ones.

I checked online sites, but have not found one that lists this particular 'feature', or states that it secures it well.

Thank you for any valuable input.

I've been using these to hold a big tall 1 liter bottle for almost 2 years, and haven't dropped a bottle yet.
No constant readjustment needed either.


Made by The Friendly Swede.
$14.99 for a pair on Amazon. A little pricey, but well worth it in my opinion.

Thanks JAsxxx for you answer, and the pictures!

They sure do not look like they can hold a bottle securely, especially the pic you posted with a bottle in it.

But, since you are using them and are satisfied, I will give it a try. I can try it before mounting it on my bike (I have mounts for 2 cages).

That they are pricey is not an issue, you get what you pay for, I am not cheap.

Thank you again. Greatly appreciated.

No problem, sir.
I have an extra one right now, and if your local to me I'd be willing to loan it to you before you buy. If not, buy a pair, you won't be disappointed. Tweak (bend) it to fit your bottle of choice, and it will hold.
