Angel and Kurt,

Minoura makes a nice (modern and off-topic) handlebar bottle cage mounting plate adapter to which a normal bottle cage can be mounted. It's an off-topic item, but replicates the on-topic original HB bottle cage mounts, so it might qualify as a KOF accessory. It's great for getting coffee from PEET's or other java places as well as being a more convenient water bottle location for city riding and commuting.

(I use my downtube-mounted cage for my very-off-topic NiteRider 13.2V dual-beam bottle-cage battery pack.)
