I wasn’t too happy when I realized I couldn’t fit a full size bottle in my new bike, but I’m happy I went with the fidlock! The price is pretty comparable to what you’d pay for a small water bottle and a cage. But the fidlock magnet attachment is actually very convenient, snaps in easily, and the bottle is nice. Plus having the low profile attachment on the bike is kind of nice.
All in all, I was happy to pay a little more to get a nice system like this.
I bought the Twist 450 set up for my Rascal. I went small, as I wasn't sure if the bigger bottle would fit. I have used a month or more now, and report the overall set up is good. The bottles don't have any thermal properties, so if you are trying to keep something cold, it won't last long. I have even frozen my liquids first, but they thaw and get warm quickly. No issues with bottle falling off the bike, even on big hits or drops. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one. I decided to try the bigger 590 bottle to get a few more ounces on the bike. I received the new bottle, but not magnet attached to the bottle. WTF crap is that? I tried to remove the magnet from smaller bottle and I can't budge the middle screw piece. It's plastic and my screw driver is basically tearing the shit out of the screw. Epic fail on that one! Now, I'm awaiting another $15 magnet piece for the new bottle. I tried calling Fidlocks phone number to discuss, but like many other companies these days, you can't talk to anyone. Just a bit frustrated at this experience.
Perfect for my bike packing needs. This solves those tight spaces for my frame. Loving it and the fact the Fidlock is such an awesome company to deal with. One happy customer here!
It’s my first time to try fidlock products and I’m glad I did ‘coz it just fit my need for my ride specific. I bought the twist bottle 450ml. It’s the right size for my bike frame and just the right amount of water for my quick and short rides up the trails. It stays intact even in technical and gnarly trails. It stays secure and immovable. The dust cap keeps me from tasting the dirt when drinking(a real plus). I never used a bottle for my rides before but I’m glad to try it and very satisfied! First bottle try with fidlock, I’m a new fan. 5️⃣⭐️!
GREAT WATER BOTTLE AND MOUNTING SYSTEM! NOTHING ELSE WOULD WORK FOR MY SMALL ROAD AND XSMALL MTB BIKE FRAMES!
