Adding an extra water bottle mount ...bianchi boy

A while back I posted a message looking for a way to add another water bottle mount to my old Bianchi frame, which has just one set of braze-ons. Neither my local bike shops nor anyone else suggested an idea that worked to my satisfaction.

However, in perusing the Excelsports catalogue, I came across an item called a Zefal Gizmo bottle clamp for mounting an extra cage on frames. It only cost $4, so I figured what the heck, and ordered one. Well, the Gizmo really works and I can't believe none of my LBS's knew about the product. It has a couple of black nylon clamps that tighten around the frame, and your water bottle cage attaches to the clamps with regular hex screws. It's light, nonobtrusive, and holds the cage firmly in place. (As opposed to the Velcro ones that I've heard slide down your seatpost.)

Anyone, I thought someone else might have the same predicament and would appreciate knowing about this. That's all from BB.
Thanks for the info. nmMB1
