Description

Riding side-saddle not required.

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

Perfect Fit

    I love this thing, I'm a right hand bottle grabber and I needed to be able to get a bottle in my Hightower LT. The other sideloader fits perfect and allows me to keep my water on the bike and not my back.

    Best cage out there.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Not a cheap cage, by a long shot. Tacx Tao looks cool, weighs about the same, and you can get three for the price of one Sideloader/other Arundel models. But the Tacx does not even compare re: performance (bottle retention; no rattle; no bolt loosening; ease of bottle entry/exit; longevity, etc.) I have a Sideloader on the seat tube of my sloping top-tubed Helium and an Othersideloader on the downtube; same with my Noah FAST. No problems with clearance or anything else--just quick, natural/ergonomic bottle motion. This isn't just a convenience, either; it saves time and energy (mental and physical). And that makes you faster. BTW: Can't comment on off-road use, as I ride strictly on asphalt. I'm thinking it'd be more than capable of handling the rough stuff, though.

    But you get what you pay for.

    Compact Frames Rejoice

    I'm finally able to drink while I'm riding without locking out my damper switch! Hooray!!

    What is the dimension (mm) between the points in the attached image? My frame is a tight fit and I am looking for a sideloader cage that can be mounted low.

    Good solution for tight frames

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Recently bought Trek Top Fuel. The triangle is too tight for a top loading cage. The side access design works great.

    Worth every $0.01

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have the ride smaller frames so already my choices for bottles and bottle cages are limited. These are the best that I've used so far. Easy to slide bottles in and easy to slide out. Can be setup for lefty or righty no problem.

    Easy

      Easy in and out, allows me to focus on riding instead of pulling my bottle out of the cage or putting it back in. Perfect fit for my tallboy 3.

      Easy in and out

        I got the Arundel OtherSideLoader for my Santa Cruz 5010 because the shock made it hard to pull a bottle straight out. This solved the problem 100%. It's now as easy to grab the bottle as on my road bike.

        The bottle is held very securely. I have yet to lose a bottle out of it even on rough rocky trails. I used it for Leadville 100 with no issues what so ever.

        Great product!

        the other easy access

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Arundel cages are my first choice in carbon cages. They will allows hold your bottle with the grip of King Kong and they look great also. The Sideloader and Othersideloaders are perfect for small frames or easy access on the mountain bike. I would not pick another carbon cage for any of my builds.

        Bottle never drops

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Looks great and holds the bottle very well. I use this on a mountain bike and I've never had a bottle drop. It does get scratched from use but overall it's perfect.

        Works great on down tube

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Love these sideloaders. Started with sideloader on seat tube and Dave-O on downtube but loved the sideloader so much that I returned Dave-O and got this other sideloader. No regrets--love how easy it is to grab and put back in.

        Great Water Bottle Cage

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I'm not sure it's necessary to worry about what hand dominant you are with water bottle cages. I use this one on my Pivot 429 because the side loading from the right works best with the suspension linkage. This cage is light weight, looks great and securely holds the water bottle.

        Awesome design!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Cage holds bottle tightly, allows access on SC Nomad frame, where normal bottle cage would not work.
        Very happy with the purchase.

        Looks good and bottle never falls out

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        What more could you want? It's easy to load and unload your bottle, but it doesn't fall out accidentally. Awesome cage!

        Great hold. Great design.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Holds a camelbak podium insulated water bottle very securely. I leave the bottle in this cage while driving with my bike on my car on the freeway as well as bombing down rocky trails. It's never fallen out. Good solid construction and all the class you'd expect from Arundel.
        This is absolutely a must for a full suspension bike if you're going to try and mount a bottle cage. It works perfectly on my HD3.

        Great Cage

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The price point on this might be a bit painful compared to lesser options, but you really get what you pay for. You spent how many thousands on your new fancy bike? This is an accessory worthy of the finest frames. I got it specifically for my SC Nomad because the side loading works out great with the very cramped bottle cage area on my frame. Overall been very happy with it. Easy to get the bottle in and out and bottle is held very snug and has survived through very rough trails. And the cherry on top would be that it also looks pretty darn good and certainly wont weigh you down.

        Even if I get frames with more room for other style cages, I think I'll be sticking to this side loader for the foreseeable future.

        What size is your Nomad .. I have a large, was wondering if you could get a 24 oz bottle to fit using this cage?

        Update: I got a new bike this year (switched from Nomad to Bronson) and after using this cage all season last year I purchased it again for my new bike. I could easily save myself $20 and go with one of the more economical options, which also work great to be honest, but this one works great and looks great so I went for it again. My concern was that it holds the bottle so tight it might eventually just warp the bottle and stop holding it as well, but I've used the same bottle for a long time now with zero issues.

        Great Bottle Cage

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These are great bottle cages. Light weight and sleek. The side loaders work well on mtn bike frames that tend to be tight in the big triangle area. Highly recommended

        Great for Difficult Downtube Locations

          The OtherSideloader solved a design flaw on my wife's bike. The manufacturer located the screw holes so high on the down tube that a large capacity water bottle could not be removed from a standard cage without hitting the head tube of the bike with her hand. That problem no longer exists with the OtherSideloader.
