Why wouldn't you use a side loader?

I bought this side loading bottle cage for my new full sus bike which doesn't have room for a conventional cage. Having used it a bit I'm now of the opinion that these are superior in almost every respect to a normal cage. I can see all my bikes ending up sporting one eventually.

Lezyne Flow Bottle Cage.

Not very good. Having a small frame I need a side entry bottle cage for a small bottle. This one however will soon find its way in to the dustbin. It crushes a bottle - it is just too small and made of a plastic which is too hard. I guess the good news is that you are unlikely to lose your bottle, however its difficult to get a bottle in - even from above. I don't think the designers have ever actually tried to use this bottle cage.

Fab cage

Bought this cage to go with a topeak bottle cage holder. My bike only had one set of mounts and to use the seat tube I had to mount the topeak gadget high up to clear the other bottle. Then the bottle would not clear the top tube hence side loading cage required. It works very well and has gripped bottles well on all rides (road use). My only reservation is if you use soft compound bottles of the taller variety I would have less faith in the grip. 21 oz are fine. If you always take your drinks from the same side and are buying 2, make sure you buy one of each as they are handed. Typical Lezyne high quality product.

Great for MTB

I wouldn't buy this for a road bike as it grips the bottle very tightly making it a bit difficult to get out but I'm using it on my MTB, which won't fit a top loading cage, and the bottle never bounces out. Top quality product as you would expect from Lezyne.

Lezyne Flow Side Load Cage

Typical Lezyne quality at a great price. Perfect solution for tight space in a full suspension mountain bike frame for those times you don't want to ride with a hydration pack.

Does exactly what it says on the.... bottle

Light, strong, cheap; pick two the saying goes, but this has *all* three. Works great on my full suspension MTB allowing me to carry a water bottle despite there being limited space when using a conventional cage to get the bottle in/out. Holds the bottle securely, I've never had a bottle come loose even on rough off-road terrain. The elongated mounting holes are handy, and allow you some fine adjustment to position the cage just right. Feels and looks quality product.

Great solution for fullsus frame

After being fed up with filling a 3L hydration pack for short rides and struggling to fit a standard cage and bottle without the threat of fouling the frame I discovered this item. It is perfect. Paired with a camelback podium bottle which can be placed in an out of the cage without any frame contact. The build quality is excellent too and the matt black looks great.

Simple & strong design great idea!

The cage is lightweight but strong holds the bottle well Camelbak Podium Chill but no trouble to remove. Using it on a full suspension frame where the cage is mounted on top of the top frame rail and close to the steering head with no room for a front loading cage. Ideal bottle cage for this situation

Lezyne Flow Cage Side Load

This item is ideal for full suspension designs that leave very little room within the front triangle. The plastic structure holds the bottle firmly with no threat of it vibrating out. I use it on a Canyon Spectral with a Podium Chill bottle and its a great fit with frame and bottle.

Bottles & Cages Guide

What are bike bottles and cages?

A bottle and cage set-up is a really efficient way of staying hydrated while you’re riding. Simply reach out and your beverage is close at hand. It’s so important to drink plenty of fluid while you’re riding to prevent dehydration, so anything that makes it easier to do that is a must-have.

Who needs a bottle and cage?

Riders who need instant refreshment use bottles and cages. Whether the bottle contains water or an energy drink, it’s close at hand and easily supped from a specifically designed mouthpiece. Remember, even if you’re pootling along at a sedate pace, you’re still exercising, which is always thirsty work.

What are the choices?

Choose the bottle which you’ll find easiest to drink out of and the most simple to use with an accompanying cage. The cage selection ranges from feather light carbon holders to sturdy steel receptacles. Side-loading cages are great for compact frames where space is at a premium. BPA-free construction means you won’t ingest any nasty chemicals.

What should I buy with them?

A bottle brush is brilliant for cleaning, especially with smaller bristles to clean the mouthpiece. If your bike doesn’t have eyelets for a cage, there are adaptors available.

Anything else?

Make sure you regularly clean your bottle – it’s very easy to leave it festering on your bike. A few ice cubes in summer gives you a refreshingly chilled drink.
