Why not mount the bottle on the top tube if the stand over is fairly low?

It is a sad statement on modern bike design when the best upgrade you have had on your state of the art bike is a zap strapped 12oz water bottle

Have a process 134 that I'm thinking of getting one of these for, just checking what size frame you have? Also, did you just zip tie the Uni base on? Or is that a modified regular base?

Apologies chaps, I've been offline for a while.
Yes, it's a 450ml fidlock twist bottle on a unibase. I used zipties instead of the included rubber straps for permanence.
Had to do a little surgery on the mount to make it fit over the cable boss, just cutting out some material really. The cables and hoses just hold against the side of the mount with the zipties.
Frame is a Large, 2016 153. I have also done the same on my large 2017 111. Pretty sure I could fit a 600ml in that one as it is slightly longer in the frame and has a CC DBair IL in which of course doesn't have a piggy back. I'll let you know when my 600ml bottle arrives!
In answer to the toptube question, yes i could, but I've had caged bottles on the top tube and a) they look ugly, b) they fall out on rough/steep terrain as they're nearly horizontal to start with (admittedly not an issue with the fidlock but, see point a) and c) you end up with energy drink spaffed all over your top tube and headset.
