Bikes you would buy if only they held a bottle.

Water bottle compatibility has zero bearing on my decision to buy a bike or not. Nice to have, but absolutely not a concern at all to me.


Plus I love my camelbak. Fanny packs are supper trendy right now

C'mon they're hip packs, fanny packs were in the nineties

If you're not hip, they're fanny packs.

You can't call them fanny packs over this side of the pond...

SKS Anycage on the way...

Seriously though, I'm finding that i'm drinking less when the bottle is in my fanny pack than when it was on my bike. Much more of a PITA to grab it. I ran a fanny pack for most rides last year and it was great, but kept the bottle on the bike. Now the bottle is in the fanny pack, I can't wait to get it back on the bike.

I think i'd have a real problem if it was IMPOSSIBLE to fit a bottle on a bike, since ditching the camelbak (except for big rides).

No. I’m on the M frame. Don’t think a bottle fits. I tried with one of mine. Unless I went to a child’s bottle then that may fit.

You mean bikes I would buy if they held two water bottles and a frame bag! I'm not going backwards on H20 and tool storage onboard the bike. :)

We need a list of bikes I'd own if only the seat tube was longer...
