Satisfying. A big improvement over this year's other experiments. Probably should have just bought this first but it was so extreme at the time that I needed intermediate steps to get my head around it. It's going to take some time to really get to know it. Finally a bike worth keeping! Though I'm already thinking I could use more reach lol.

So my Canfield didn't come with bottle mounts. I bought some of the 3m sticky tape that gopro uses for their mounts and machined up some little pads with a nut in them and stuck them to the frame. Screwed in a bottle cage and Presto! Worked like a charm!

The point of the comment , Huge space in the frame for the builder to fit a bottle and they don,t. Some designs force one to mount a bottle on the bottom of the frame . Been there done that , won,t be happening again LOL. With the amount of $$$ some of these frames cost . I want features like a bottle mount in the frame!!!.
