I think I finally found some nice additions to my new 36er.
I’ve been looking for a secure way to attach two water bottle cages to the KH T-bar or seatpost and I believe this is the answer. While searching the internet, I stumbled across the Velocity SPT Bottle Cage Holder. The picture on Ebay doesn’t do it justice. It looks almost plastic in the picture, but it is actually aluminum. Ebay image. It is incredibly sturdy and holds two large water bottles. I decided to mount it on the KH T-bar. I was surprised that my knees don’t hit the holder.

I was worried that they might get bent up, so I added some bumpers that I purchased from UDC several years ago. I don’t think they are made anymore. Too bad, I really like these pedal protectors.
