Apidura Bottle Cage Adapter puts Anything cages on any bike, adds bikepacking adjustability

Tips & Reviews

Apidura’s Innovation Lab has its first-ever hardware component with a simple new Bottle Cage Adapter meant to ease adventure bike setup. Developed both to help lower water bottles for improved fit under bikepacking bags, but also to add 3-bolt Anything Cage compatibility to almost any bike with standard bottle bosses, the Apidura adapter may help you fit more gear on your bike…

Adaptable mounting brackets and bottle cage adaptors are super helpful for adventure riders looking to stuff more gear inside their frame, especially when paired with partial frame bags that fill much of your front triangle. And cage adapters aren’t especially new, we’ve seen Wolf Tooth’s great B-Rad system for years. But curiously, the simple 2-bolt to 3-bolt adaptor never made it to the WTC line-up, so Apidura’s Innovation Lab decided to create their own.

The Apidura Bottle Cage Adapter does add about 4-5mm of stack height between your frame and cage, but allows for 55mm of up & down adjustment which should help fit more bottles, or bigger bottles into tight spaces. That could likely be a help both for cyclists with bikepacking bags, as well as other constrained situations like extra small frames or even full-suspension mountain bikes.

The simple adapter is CNC-machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, anodized black, and weighs a claimed 22g. At 140mm overall it has 3-pack compatible spacing – each spaced 64mm apart – so you can mount a Salsa-style Anything Cage or a standard bottle cage in either the upper or lower position.
