How to Choose Bike Water Bottles and their supports?

A bike bottle cage is a device used to attach a water bottle to a bicycle. Made of plastic, aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, or carbon fiber. The bike bottle cage is connected to the frame of a bicycle, the handlebars, back to the saddle, or, in exceptional cases, the fork. Most functional bicycles have weird holes in the frame to carry the bottle cage. You can buy a bottle cage from Specialized, Elite, Tacx, Zipp, XLC.

Here are some tips to buy a water bottle cage for your bike as follow:

Materials: Bottle cages are typically made from stainless alloy, plastic, or carbon fiber. So choose a simple and secure one.
Bottle retention: The main purpose of the bottle cage is to hold the bottle, so it must clutch the bottle securely around the collar and the bottle body. So buy one that has extra grip on the bottle’s surface and to help absorb road vibrations that could stagger the bottle loss.
The comfort of access: You will require to be capable of reaching down and effortlessly removing and replacing the bottle while riding at speed, so the retention can’t be too tight as to make this tricky.
Weight: High end carbon fiber water cages are familiar because of their lightweight. Buy a lightweight bottle cage because it is comfortable.
Size: Buy one that is standard sized to fit both large and small bottles.
