Put a bottle in a cage between your aero bars. An Aero bottle is good if you don't have a huge straw sticking up, but that is difficult to sort out...

If you have the choice between aero bottle cage and saddle mount which one will you prefer?

it's called the "hed lollipop" and looks to be available at lots of places, this came up on google: https://www.google.com/search?q=hed+lol ... 80&bih=592

King also has a very similar bottle holder thats cheaper but only comes in the more rear ward config: http://www.cambriabike.com/King-Cage-St ... -Mount.asp

Finally, I just drill a bottle cage and use zip ties. There is a million ways to do this. I drill small holes so that the cage can be zip tied to one extension. It looks like Specialized's Rib Cages would be good for this as they have a slight recess: http://www.specialized.com/an/en/ftb/wa ... geroad-mtb
