    I didn't see an applicable existing thread for this topic.

    Responding to @SnakeCharmer's request for routing/clip photos:


    Clips supplied by Kingdom Bike when bolt-on routing is specified:

    Kind of hard to see, but they are essentially like this photo from the www:

    Except some are for two lines and some for just one. The ones under the top tube are for one line. The ones on the down tube are for two but I'm using just one.


    Here's a two-piece single-line alloy clip I got from GG (with a plastic POS in the background). It doesn't pinch the line against the frame like the style above:

    I understand that with a guide clip under the cage a little more leverage will be applied to the braze-on and bolt with a full water bottle jostling around. Possibly more still if a pump mount is stacked in there, too. I'm thinking it's not an issue at all, especially with the smaller (20-22 oz) bottles we use.

    A Google search shows many different styles of alloy clips. Something for any possible application, it seems. I think it's worth considering the contour of the frame tube in choosing the best ones.

    You can also make your own using zip ties and a piece of hose, or even two zip ties.
