Arundel Sideloader/Othersideloader Cage Combo $113.95
Arundel Sideloader bottle cages were designed specifically to address bottle access issues for folks that ride small or compact geometry frames. Rather than forcing you to pull (or attempt to pull) your bottle fully upward, its minimalist profile allows you to pull the bottle up just a bit, then to move it outward to prevent the top of the bottle from smacking the bottom of the top tube. The only problem with the Sideloader is that it's designed for bottles to be pulled in one direction. That's why they soon made the OtherSideloader so that, if you prefer to reach for your bottle with one particular hand, you can have easy and natural access for both bottles from the same side of the bike.
All you need is a pair -- one of each. That's exactly why we've created this Arundel Sideloader/OtherSideloader Carbon Fiber Bottle Cage Combo. One of each will give you the option to have both accessed from the right side of your bike or from the left. Our combo will include one of each in three different color options -- Oil Slick, Red, or Silver.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Arundel is the best cage around and I think everyone knows that. I've been skeptical of sideloaders for many years but this past season it was impossible to use a regular cage. I went with this cage and it worked great. Be sure to really think about which hand you use to drink though. I ended up getting a right hand loader and the left hand may have worked out better. Also, keep in mind the location of the shock adjustment lever (ie CTD), I would frequently hit the lever and kick the shock out of climb mode.
