The Bottleclip Clip-On Bottle Holder – Smart Design For The Hipster Cyclist

bottleclip1

By David Ponce

Most modern bicycles come with a bottle holder of one form or another. Which is why this product might seem redundant to some of you. But that’s because you’re forgetting an oft ignored class of society: the hipsters. Yes, they’re people too and like us they get dehydrated now and again. It would also seem that part of their wacky shenanigans involve an unexplainable compulsion to acquire certain types of bicycles that are conspicuously devoid of any bottle holder (or gears for that matter; a truly soothing sight to nervous downtown motorists’ worldwide). To their rescue comes Matthias Ries’ concept product called simply enough, The Bottleclip. It’s a little piece of plastic with a threaded opening that accepts most bottles on one side, and a clip that attaches to standard size bike frames on the other.

Of course, like most good ideas this is only a concept for now. But given that it’s just molded plastic, all it takes is one enterprising manufacturer to license the rights and start up production. Someone in China reading this?

A few more pictures if you keep reading.

    Looks ok, but a pain to remove. I would change the bottom portion to be a simicircle to slide the bottle top into, or even full circle (or oval) that opens on one end to accept the bottle then close back to secure it.
    You have to open the bottle either way, but opening it while bent over and reaching down does not look convenient.
