    Any recommendation for a side load bottle cage for a very small frame? Rigid xc frame so needs to hold the bottle tight. Trying to move away from a rucksack but a standard bottle cage wont let me put my bottle in. Even tried Topeak’s bottle cage adjuster (2 of them together) to lower the cage on the downtube but still cant get a 750ml bottle in there.

    I’ve got the side-load version of the Lezyne Flow cage and it seems very good.

    Zee is the lowest profile one so the best for tight frames.

    I was about to ask this same question. Looks like Zee it is then!

    Cheap Zefal Wizz side loaders here, with mrs_oab’s and big_oab’s frames necessitating a smaller bottle.

    The Zefal’s are great.

    Zee cages are good. Managed to get a decent sized bottle on a Jeffsy with a modified one

    if you are chasing the dream, the FWE carbon is good.

    This is a proper numpty question, but presumably a side loading cage is the solution if you lose space using a frame bag?

    Started using a frame bag to keep pumps and tools clean and to carry an insulated gilet for outdoor cafe stops in this lockdown winter, but makes a standard cage too fiddly.

    Yep. That’s why I have them on my Amazon now. Standard cages worked previously.

    Not sure you can really chase the dream with an Evans/Mike Ashley brand 😉
