Bikase's New ABC Bottle Cage Adjusts to Almost Any Size of Bottle

Dec 16, 2019
by Ed Spratt  

Bikase have announced their imaginatively-named ABC Cage (Any Bottle Cage), which has a unique design to allow the fitment of, you guessed it, nearly any bottle. Using a flexible plastic cage and ratchet straps, riders can adjust the cage to provide a secure fit on a variety of different bottles.


There are a number of cages available for the standard water bottle, but this solution from Bikase could be handy for riders looking to carry an unconventional bottle or a tall-can on rides. The ABC's ratchet system allows a slip-free fitting on any bottle between 2 1/4" and 4 3/4".


As well as fitting a whole range of different bottles, the ABC can also provide a solution for those who either don't have bottle mounts in their frame or can't fit a larger sized bottle. Sold as an accessory for $14, the 'Anywhere Cage Strap Adapter' can be mounted anywhere on a bike frame so riders don't have to worry about frame limitations.


Bikase have the ABC Cage available now for $25, as well as the adapters. More information is available here.

 Any Bottle Cage is an alright name, but this thing should clearly be called the Hold My Beer.

 Dang, you're right, copycat design, & same price? Give your money to Arundel: they may be retrogrouches, but they're original, creative retrogrouches!

 Brilliant! In addition to pure problemsolving genius, product comes w/ added benefit of BiKase meaning "bisexual cheese" in German! It's like the love child of MacGyver & Top Secret!

 I dunno if about this cage but the Arundel Looney Bin definitely holds a forty. Same price, higher quality, and been around for years!

 All jokes aside, this pretty neat because it will provide the option to carry more of the stainless steel bottles. Trying to make the move away from plastic bottles to stainless steel.

 And a move away from carbon

 just buy a couple good plastic bottles and keep them for years and use them just for biking to maximize their lifespans. There are so many other ways to cut waste, a bottle that you have for 10 years (or more) is just not really a problem when you consider that a) the plastic works so much better in this application and b) you will waste shit tons more plastic doing other stuff in the next year. Making sweeping habit changes (like composting, not buying disposable stuff, and driving as little as possible) does so much more than trying to avoid having a couple specialized bottles. Better yet, find some plastic bottles left at your local trailhead/bike shop and take them home (beach the f*ck out of em, of course.)

 @trialsracer: its also about the amount of plastic i ingest. I cycle almost every day, then throw my Purist bottles in the dishwasher. Yeah, BPA free but no matter how quality the plastic is, its not good to be heating (dishwasher) any plastic bottles up and then using the bottles over and over. Not just about landfills, but my future health.

 Don't stainless steel bottles fit a regular bottle cage? I have a Camelbak Eddy isolated bottle but only use it in the Ortlieb cage (which attaches to my bag) but the diameter appears quite regular. What I was thinking for this one though would be that it would hold my (unconventionally large diameter) Thermos soup countainer with a spoon in the lid. Wouldn't that be nice, to go out on a long winter ride and actually have a hot soup after a couple of hours?

I have moved away from plastic bottles a long time ago. It is just the past few years that I also moved away from aluminium bottles. Glass and steel only for me now. In terms of food safety, this is the way to go.

 @vinay: regular cages fit some of the short stainless bottles (kids size stainless bottles, about 12 oz or so , Klean Kanteen brand). However, Im looking for normal cycling bottle size of 20 to 24 oz. Im going with single wall stainless so I can stay hydrated and throw bottle into dishwasher everyday. Single wall stainless bottles are getting harder to find as many companies are going to double wall insulation. Which for my situation is a waste of space and a no go for dishwasher. Pretty sure I have a plan now though...

 This just a 'Arundel Looney Bin' knock-off..

 I’ve had the Aurendel Loony bin for two years which came out years ago and it’s going strong. Any bottle, like 1.5L or even a rain jacket fits in there...

 its like these freakin big shocks takin up space in cramped frames leavin not much enough room for standard tall bottle cylinders of the esssential h2o makes me thinkn some deformed blob of contained volumous wter squished into an unorthodox restraining device might be the answer ... still dont quite see it though. guess its the butt sack holster for back up to the heat gun melt molded pint sized side loaded piddly podium for now....

 Seems like they are selling the expensive tooling and development. You can have the super sleek, proven FidLock BOA cage - its real trick - or some old snowboard binding (that will fail) and velcro.

 This could be a halfway decent idea. You could always use it to carry tools over winter when it's too sh!tty to ride with a bottle.

 if you believe the specs, this has a significantly larger range of bottle fit than the Arundel (roughly 1/4" smaller dia and 7/8" larger dia versus Arundel).
