I have a new V4 Ripley on the way. I’ve never been a fan of having a water bottle mounted to the frame but I think I’d like to give it a try. I’ll be on an XL Ripley. What sideload cages and bottles work best without allowing the bottle to contact the seattube? Are they going to stay put if I throw a table top or tail whip Or should I expect to be chasing my water bottle down the trail? Thx!

Ibis bikes are designed to work best with the Arundel Side Loader. I'm sure plenty of other brands would work, though.
It seems like the census is for Arundel! I think most brands don't work! I tried four on my V1 Ripmo, stripped a bolt and nicked my frame in the process. The best so far is Lezyne but not sure if that's enough clearance. I have the Arundel flip flop on order which is actually cheap - around $20 ( non Carbon). I'll see how that works.

Funny, just like the OP, I haven't used a water bottle in years and been using a hydration pack, for the same reasons. I thought I'd try it and found it's liberating not to have that pack on my back!...LOL. I'll see if I can get something to work...hopefully.

anyone have a recommendation for a side loader cage that can fit a 24-26 oz bottle?
An alternative albeit more expensive option to the Lezyne is the Side Loader by King Cages. It mounts lower on the frame than the Lezyne maximizing the space for a bottle. Here is the King on my Wife's Small Mojo 3 and she can fit a 26oz Specialized Purist without any issues!
