If you think seat packs are whack and loath loading up your jersey pockets with your emergency repair kit, the PRO storage bottle provides a clever storage solution.
It fits in virtually any water bottle cage and has a storage capacity of 500cc which is plenty of space for the essentials. Total height is about 5 inches and a wide mouth opening means easy access.
The top isn't very secure and popped off on my first ride. The threads have too much clearance between the top and the container body. I wrapped a piece of electrical tap around the container threads (one wrap) and now its really secure.
What to do with that under the downtube water bottle bracket? This bottle is great for carrying small spares like tubes, keys, band-aids & such; water tight lid keeps them all dry and safe.
Smaller than expected, about half the size of a large water bottle. Other than that, works well.
What can I say? It stores things. I have mine turned into a mini survival kit. With the wide opening it works great. I take it with me on my hikes and rides. Nests very nicely into a titanium cup I have. So, I can collect water in the storage bottle and boil it in my ti cup if necessary. For my use, it's just what I need.
This is not as big as an actual water bottle, still functional but its about 2 inches shorter than I anticipated.
This is a handy tool holder for day when I just don't want a pack or to pop on to a recreational bike with the kids. Instant tool pack, tube holder, food holder.
After searching for a water tight storage container, I came across this cool item at Price Point. Designed to fit tightly in your water bottle cage, the Pro storage container with a threaded, spin off, water tight cap works well for keeping items secure and dry on those wet and rainy rides. I have found that the Pro container works well on either my road or mountain bike and it stays in place very well when stashed in the water bottle cage. Besides storing valuable items, tools or spare tubes inside, I have also used this cool little container as a portable food container on one ride (after washing it out first). It worked well and from the envious stares from my riding buddies as I ate a nice moist snack and they crunched away on their energy bars, I could see that they wished that they had one of the Pro storage bottles, too!
Big enough for tube and 10 function multi tool. Much cleaner than taping stuff to frame. And it's light (around 40g for bottle and 25 g for the water bottle holder to put it in) making the complete storage system only 65 g's.
Well made but a little on the small size.
Make use of those unused water bottle cages. A great way to carry a spare tube, extra tools, CO2 cartridges, etc. I keep the heavier items in these instead of my pack. It keeps the center of gravity of the bike low and less strain on me from a heavy pack. These are a little smaller and is why I rated them a 4 not a 5.
