Water bottle mounts have seen a resurgence in importance since on-bike storage became the done thing, with some manufacturers slow on the uptake, either putting the mounts in odd places, or not at all. Some suspension designs just won’t allow it either, especially on smaller frames.
Granite Design are back with their latest smart bit of kit to solve that problem, or get more bottles on your bike if you’re already maxxed out, with the new Aux Cage. The Aux Cage attaches to tubes between 27.2 and 70mm via some silicone-backed straps, featuring a side-loading cage.
While it might be hard to get excited about a bottle cage, Granite Design have yet again come up with a handy, no nonsense addition to their range that solves a problem many are sure to face.
Granite Design’s Aux Cage is available in the UK via Windwave.
