My neighbor just got his Prophet and mine should be in later this week but I'm a little concerned because I can't find any water bottle mounts. Does anyone have ideas on mounting any?

Thanks
Adam

There are mounts under the the frame, just above the bottom bracket, not very convenient but that's it. Most use a Camelbak, I like that better than bottles. There is supposed to be normal bottle mounts in 2006. Apparently, a change of the design late in the process is the reason for no convenient mounts...

howd did you do the carbon fiber mount. it looks really good. i would be interested in doing that or buying one if your selling them. also, what did your friend do. it looks like there some kind of tie. i also was upset about the lack of mounts so i bought a camelback, although i like waterbottles better

Those look like some good solutions, i just bought this last night, i let you know how it works, it lets clip a water bottle cage anywhere on the bike, so im going to try it on the seatpost and the handlebars.
I am guessing that the support arm will rotate, if not how can you snap it to the seat post ?? If it does rotate it looks like a good solution.

I checked the web site and the also have some more permanant (ie without quick release) but my questions there is the same: does the mount rotate ?

Anybody know ??

PS My friend has a bike shop and he has tried to fit a sideways-entry bottle holder under the shock but it wont fit (with bottle) on the smaller bikes (S & M).

Hi,
here 2 solution.

On my Prophet and on friend's Prophet (carbon solution home made !!!).
A totally unrelated question. In the last photo, the Prophet has a black swingarm and balck and white CDale stcikers on the (galvanized) frame - I like the look but have never seen it before. What model prophet is the bike and how did you get the paint job???

Thanks in advance

It's not the galvanized, it's the Team Replica color, also available on the Prophet 1000 in Europe.
