Have you ever purchased a bike part online, waited a week for it to reach you, only to find that it doesn't fit? Incompatibility is a big problem in many industries, and cycling is no exception.
FIDLOCK has eliminated that issue. Their innovative designs ensure that every bike frame is compatible with their hydration system.
FIDLOCK's aims to change the way cyclists and athletes hydrate, and that means getting their bottle just about anywhere. So, whether you have a fat bike frame, a frame from the 70's, a frame with a tiny gap, or even a unicycle, FIDLOCK has a way to keep your thirst at bay.
The Bike Base + Modules
The TWIST Bike Base from FIDLOCK is ultra thin, allowing it to fit on even the narrowest frame gaps. And, with FIDLOCK's variable size water bottles, you can pick the right size bottle for your frame.
This magnetic base easily fits any standard mounting threads on bikes, and it boasts an ultra-light weight of 16 grams (0.56 oz).
The smallest combination for the bike base + bottle is our TWIST bottle 450 + bike base combo. The dimensions that a small bottle can fit in on a frame are 6 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/2" (17.14CM x 8.9CM).
The larger combination that allows you to carry more water is our TWIST bottle 600 + bike base combo. The 600 bottle + base dimensions are 8 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/4" (22.23CM x 8.26CM).
The Uni Base + Modules
There are several reasons why someone would want to use the TWIST Uni Base. If your frame’s thread inserts for cages are blocked or non-existent, the Uni Base has you covered.
Secured with the help of two rubber-backed, adjustable zip ties, the uni base will secure itself to virtually any part of a bike frame.
Once secured, the all the same FIDLOCK modules (any bottle or our universal connector) are useable with the base.
Just like the bike base, our smallest combination for the Uni Base + Bottle pairs with our 450 on the TWIST bottle 450 + Uni Base combo. The dimensions that a small bottle can fit in on a frame are 6 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/2" (17.14CM x 8.9CM).
The larger combination that allows you to carry more water is our TWIST bottle 600 + Uni Base combo. This pair can fit into a 8 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/4" (22.23CM x 8.26CM) space.
If you're unsure...
If you’re not positive which base will work best for your frame, run through the following troubleshooting steps.
- Check if your bike frame has threaded mounts for a cage or bottle holder.
- If so, you’re likely a candidate for our standard Bike Base, but it may be worth checking that the threads are 1.7” (43mm) apart.
- If your bike doesn’t have threads, or if the threads are not 1.7” (43mm) apart, you’re a candidate for our uni base.
