There are many ways to carry enough fluids for a ride. On a Brompton, there is the option to put the bottles into a Mini-O bag. Some install the water bottle cage system on the handlebar stem to hold a water bottle.
I have both options on for some months. With both the Mini-O bag and the Monkii Bottle Cage system, I am able to carry at least two water bottles.
However, the weight at the front increased a lot, with two water bottles, and when folded with a water bottle on the handlebar stem, the B tends to tip to the right even easier. A couple of times, my B almost fell flat on its right side.
At the same time, the handlebar stem is also very cluttered (a battery pack for the NiteRider 300+ front headlamp is also installed on the stem).
I needed a system that will:
(1) reduce the weight of carrying water bottles drastically.
(2) allow me to carry two water bottles without carrying any bags on the front block. This is for days when I am going on a speed trip.
I was searching on the web as well as Facebook groups for images on how water bottles are carried on Bromptons. Finally settled on installing a bracket that supports two bottle cages.
Going to take it out for a spin the next day to test it out.
