Bicycle Repair : How to Install a Water Bottle Cage on Your Bike


Hi, this is David back with Expert Village.
Next I’m going to demonstrate for you how to install a water bottle cage. You’ve gone
to the store, bought a cage, now you need to install it. It’s really simple. All you
need is an Allen Wrench. You can pick these up pretty much at any hardware store. You’re
not going to find these at a supermarket. It’s not going be next to the fruit, so don’t
look there. So save yourself some time, go to a hardware store. Get a set of Allen Wrenches,
there not much money. Really simple, simply take the Allen and stick it in there, I’m
loosening this guy to the left and it is popping off. Normally, the cage wouldn’t already be
on the bike, obviously. It’s basically an Allen bolt right there. It’s really simple;
you just pop both of those off, put the cage back on, and then use the Allen to tighten
it back on. This is a good way to save a lot of money. This is the type of really simple
operation. If you took your bike to a bike shop, and you had them do it, they’d charge
you and arm and a leg and tell you how really complicated it is. Then afterwards, you look
at a bike and go, that wasn’t so hard. What were they selling me there? It’s a really
easy operation. I just tighten that down with my Allen and that’s basically it. That’s how
you install a water bottle cage on one of these bikes. This is David with Expert Village,
next I’m going to show you how to adjust a handle bar. Your just coming off a jump and
it’s gotten loose and you need to adjust it. This is David with Expert Village.
