Sondors water bottle holders A few of Sondors owners have inquired about the water bottle cages on my bike. This is a DIY set up using two 18x1 velcro straps and two water bottle cages. I used the straps to secure the water bottle cages to the end of the top tube, the bottom tube and the stem tube. Take care not to effect the stem and the steering. Of course you can buy the straps at Home Depot and the water bottle cages at any local bike shop. Start with one of the Velcro straps and wrap it around the top tube and bottom tube (in vertical direction). The first strap creates the base and prevents the metal bottle cages from scratching your frame. Then wrap the second strap around the stem and the opening between the top and bottom tubes and run it through the bottle cage frame to secure the bottle holders. For added protection, you can use two zip ties to better secure the cages in place and prevent them from shifting.

Also if you use a bottle with a mister, you will have instant air conditioning for those hot summer rides. @Hosermage
Since the battery box uses all of the space where one typically puts water bottles, any suggestions on where to put water bottles on the Sondors? I was thinking either hanging under the lower frame, out of wheels way, or on top of the main top frame bar somewhere up close to the bars out of gentlemens parts way. I am considering a rack for the back and could use the downward braces on that as well possibly, and I still have to figure out where to put a pump, tools etc as well. If it weren't for the big battery box, there'd be plenty of room in the A part of the frame. Thoughts?
