- Gaffer tape a bottle cage to top tube – will it work?
Plug up tube drain holes, fill frame with coke, fit camelbac tube to BB drain hole, zip tie tube to seattube, pass end of tube through a saddle with open 'love channel', shove tube up anus. Ride hard.
Et Voila! Coke enema achieves hydration without having to remove hands to reach for bottle, uninterupted breathing.
If the coke starts to run out of steam, pop a couple of mentos in via the seattube, that should get it running again for a few more laps before you can top up again.
Good luck BTW.Posted 7 years agoWaderiderMember
Have a look at plastic coasters designed for holding fishing reels to beachcasters. They are rock solid and do a great job on round tubes, I used them 'back in the day'.

Didn't want to run a camelbak as worried about chaffing or back/shoulder issues after 24 hours.
I've got a crew, in fact, Team Syncros have agreed to take us under their wing and help my crew as they're first timers. I figure one bottle should see me two laps and we should be trackside so I can grab a new bottle every two laps.
Obviously I'm banking on a dry race and no mechanicals and won't be needing the spare bike, but figured I should find and test a solution before hand.
If gaffer tape, lagging and zip ties doesn't work, I'll try some of those other suggestions.
ADH: seeing as the spare bike is my Five, imagine the amount of fluids I could fit in the downtube/swingarm!Posted 7 years agomissingfrontallobeMember

got a rubber mount from decathlon that works well.
i know SJS stock a few 'unusual' bottle mounts.
Zefal make these, which is why I think Decathlon tend to stock them. The Zefal jobbies work as well.Posted 7 years ago
