Bottle Cage Don't Need No Steenking Frame Mounts...

Postby mudlover/hater on Tue 17/Nov/15 7:25pm

Just wondering if anyone on here knows of a reliable bottle cage that can be attached to the downtube with bolts....

My hardtail has no bosses :( . I've asked Crucial Customs about brazing some on for me which they can for a great price but I'm reluctant to gark up my pretty paint in order for the procedure to take place...

It's an NS Surge in case you were curious.... :love:

Just get a shop to fit Rivnuts. No welding needed.
