Arundel Bottle Cage
Arundel Sideloader Bottle Cage
Our side loading cage utilizes the same manufacturing processes as our other cages, therefore the quality is up to our high standard. Instead of building this cage to be all things to all people we concluded a specific, one piece shape works best. We could have made it a "flip-flop" or a "reversible" design with two or three pieces, so one could mount it right or left, down tube or seat tube.
But, we didn't think instructions should be required reading to use a water bottle cage. Our Sideloader doesn't need to do everything. It just needs to work great on the seat tube of a smaller or a compact frame. And it does. We keep getting back to a basic tenet of Arundel; keep it simple.
The Sideloader is really a ¾ loader, since it's easier to holster the bottle that way. Try it and you'll see. Our Sideloader also comes with a longer spine channel with additional mounting holes, in order to fit as many brands and sizes of frames as we can. Just because your frame is small doesn't mean you have to have a goofy-looking cage. To this end, we spent many hours refining our Sideloader to blend with our Dave-O design. 30 grams.
