I bought the 23oz. Co-op water bottle and the Bontrager bat cage. It appears these do not work together. For the co-op 23 oz. bottle which cage should I buy? And if I choose to keep the Bontrager cage what water bottle fits?
Hi there @Jenlyn62 thanks for reaching out to us! I'm hoping to troubleshoot this with you.
Bottle cages can have a particularly snug fit, but I would be surprised to hear if with a little pressure the bottle cannot be inserted through the top of the cage opening. Is this the issue you are having?
@Jenlyn62 Admittedly that type of wear and tear is likely to happen over time. Unfortunately, it is a thin line between a snug enough fit to keep the bottle secure (in various riding conditions) and potentially too much pressure being applied as you describe.
Hope this helps!
I don't know what exact cage you have, but sometimes the fit can be "eased" with a bit of gentle bending. Simply tug on the metal cage to stretch it out a little. Adjust as needed.
