The Looney Bin is the place for those that just can’t get along with the rest. Not every bottle is a 73mm and not everyone wants to use a “regular” bottle while on their bike. The Looney Bin will hold anything from a convenience store bottle of H2O to a nice bottle of Cabernet. This is the perfect cage for a commuter rig or the mixer for that spring picnic.
See in the photo my 2014 GT Zaskar with the bottle cage mounted on the underside of the nearly-horizontal top-tube. While this is great for a shorter ...view morereach down to the bottle while riding, it is poor design for keeping a bottle in place on the trail, especially over rocky or rooty terrain. Worst case is actually on a rocky or Rooty downhill - it's about guaranteed to pop out. I got around this by wearing a Camelbak but wanted to be freed of that pack when riding loop courses so I sought this cage out.
Voila! With the ratcheting mechanism I can now tighten my water bottle to be secure and rode my favorite local trail with a bunch of rocks and root sections and this baby stayed put! It is great to have the confidence that my hydration will not fly out of the cage and ruin my momentum as I stop to retrieve it. view less
