where to fix our water bottles ?

Beitragvon Clemence » Do Jul 24, 2008 9:02 pm

Hi everyone,

we just bought our pino tandem which is our wedding gift! We tested it last week-end and it was quite nice. We are nearly ready for the holidays where we plan to cycle in Poland. The only thing is we wonder if you have a solution to fix water bottles (we are travelling with our baby so we need lots of water). We fixed one under the seat of the main driver, we also fix a camel bag behing the seat. But we would like to have 2 bottles more and we tried to put them on the gear but it was not very convincing. Is everyone having a solution ?

Thanks a lot
Clémence

Wellcome Clémence

Wellcome to the Pinomaniaks, Clémence!

We am sure, you will have a lot of fun with your Pino.
At the Moment, we make short trips with four on the Pino Andrea me, Tim (3Y.)and Annika 7 month......all of us are lucky. For longer trips, we bought a second used Pino (also old type), because Tim loves sitting in front and is already pedaling for hours....if not tired...for long or late trips, we take the doubleseated trailer with us, then he can sleep in it during journey
Water is no Problem we have only one holder below the captains saddle.
Other drinking bottles, we carry in lowrider and/or backroller bags and stop at a nice place for drinking and other things.
For Stuard Hiway in Australia you can equip your Pino more professional, like:

By the way, where are you lokated about?
How old is you baby?

We wish you fun and safe journeys

Hi Clémence,

we have just two bottles fixed to the Pino but on most trips -even short day-ones- we have a hydrationbag on the rack between the packs.

This one is from the german brand Zölzer. It has a little sealable tube so we always have fresh water and easy refill of our bottles

Hi Clémence,

congratulations to your wedding and safe travels always with your Pino!

If you need more ideas to fix water bottles to the frame, you might want to take a look at the Globecycler's site www.globecyclers.de - they carry several 1.5 litre bottles on the frame.

All the best,
Kati

Thanks everyone for your answers!
We will try tomorrow to fix our bottles and I'll tell you what we managed.

I have two other questions:
- we have on the front two orlieb bags (medium size) but when my "captain" turns, it happens that the front wheel touchs the bags. Did you encounter this problem?
- despite our efforts, our handlebar is still moving after some kilometers ... Any solution?

Thank you very much for your help !
We are living next Sunday from Paris to Berlin by train and then cycling in Poland for more than three weeks with our little one who is 7 month.

Do you have the large Hase kickstand, or the small one? If you have the small, you need a brace to keep the front bags apart, if you want to mount them on the front half of the lowrider. Without that brace, they hang too much inwards and touch the wheel.
There is a thread about this in the german part, maybe it helps you (at least you can look at the pics): viewtopic.php?t=24

The handlebars moved for quite a bit on our Pino as well - if it's the screw that tends to get loose, you might want to try loctite, maybe that will help.

That trip to Poland sounds very nice - where do you want to go there?

We built a brace from some pannier spare parts.

I added some stainless steel
split lock washers to the bolts holding the handlebar angle. Has been solid ever since.
