If your thread inserts are already blocked or your bike does not even have any, the TWIST products can be mounted to the bike with the TWIST uni base, the universal bottle holder. It can securely fastened with the aid of two zip ties.
On the top tube, the down tube, or the saddle tube – the TWIST uni base can be attached anywhere on the frame.

Universal Magnetic-Mechanical Bottle Holder
Great product where mounting options are limited. Customer service is top notch . Shipping was fast and highly recommend this product.
I'm not sure what their intended target was to mount the uni-base to, but the straps are long enough to be wrapped around small trees, biceps, thigh mount? ... I can't think of a single bicycle frame tube that would be that large in diameter to accommodate such long straps. Fidlock should either send it out with shorter straps, or make strap length an option when selecting the uni base. Yes... they can be cut to length if desired but you then lose the pull tab at the end.
I’m using a uni connector to hold a Sonos Roam portable speaker, and this mount works perfectly to hold it in place on bumpy city roads. The straps and base are grippy and hold surprisingly well!
The cage piece is great but the straps are not very good. The straps that come with this are unsightly and not very secure so my bottle would move a bit on every ride. I found some new straps online (nano straps by Voile) that made this perfect - looks clean and is now very secure.
Clean well thought out design which is highly functional, as advertised
