OtherSideloader Water Bottle Cage

OtherSideloader Water Bottle Cage

Since we've been a southpaw from day one, Arundel's original Sideloader carbon bottle cage is not to our liking on our down tube. We steer with our left and reach with our right. The Sideloader is designed to be pulled from the left. So for us, the Sideloader would work as a seat tube-mounted cage, but not down tube. Hence the introduction of the Arundel OtherSideloader Water Bottle Cage. It's designed to be pulled from the right side on the down tube and from the left side on the seat tube.

And to satisfy our need to give truth in advertising, both Arundel's Sideloader and OtherSideloader are not true side-loading water bottle cages. This is to state that you do not pull them out or push them in a plane that is perpendicular to the down and seat tubes. They are more accurately called 3/4 loaders, as they are designed to have the user insert and remove the bottle in a direction that is halfway between perpendicular and parallel.

One drawback to buying the OtherSideloader online is you don't get to see the cool packaging that is printed backwards on purpose until you get the cage in your hands. The cage comes with a small cardboard backing that includes alloy bolts. There are two sets of holes for the alloy bolts to go through, high and low. Choose one. Weight of a single Arundel OtherSideloader Water Bottle Cage is 30g.

  • The longer spine channel with additional mounting holes allows the cage to be mounted on most frames
  • Carbon fiber construction maintains secure bottle-gripping abilities without tipping the scale the wrong direction
  • Smooth lines add aesthetic appeal to any machine


  • Designed for left-hand-dominant riders
  • Carbon fiber construction
  • Long spine with extra mounting points for perfect placement

Solid, but not for rough terrain

I've put it through the wringer

Love these for gravel, but expect to lose bottles if using for MTB.

Perfect for my Ibis Ripmo

I've put it through the wringer

This bottle cage works excellent on the Ibis Ripmo. That bike model has issues with some bottle cages because with other cages, the bottle sits too deep, rubs against the frame, and causes damage due to the bike's geometry and bottle cage mounting location. This does an excellent job at protecting the bike from inadvertent frame damage and providing quick and easy access to a water bottle... I almost forgot to mention that it's light as a feather. I got the oil slick color option and it looks great on my bike.
