    I'm not sure that $18 is that expensive for a bottle and cage.

    But no slipping or sliding?

    Blows.

    I've got one. It slips. After that experiment failed, I used it to carry a battery on the top tube of my bike. Now it just gathers dust on my workbench.

    Just stuff the bottle in a jersey pocket, or use a rivnut tool to put a waterbottle cage on your bike.

    We inched our way up the mountain, kilometer markers passing like kidney stones.

    I've got one and it sometimes starts slipping slowly and incrementally to one side on rough roads.......not good when riding a constant.

    I have one of these on my commuter. No problems at all.

    Velo Orange sells the old fashioned TA clamps that worked for a few decades.

    Two Fish are Dangerous

    I had a very bad experience with them.

    It is hard to get them tight enough to stay put. I had one on my seat tube and it came loose during my ride, rotated the bottle to the rear wheel and self destructed. Luckily, neither the bike nor I were injured -- althought it was clear then that the velco strap had scratched up the seat tube fairly well.

    The Zelfa Gigsmos (spelling?) are what I use now.
