Water bottle holder for kids bike

Anyone recomend a cheap but decent bottle holder for the little ones bike.

Don't know if saddle or bar would be best but the gap inside the frame is not big enough for standard bottle holders.

Her currecnt ride is a Carrera Luna 20inch.

    I suspect you may struggle, I had the same issue with my youngest sons old 20" giant and ended up carrying a bottle for him until he upgraded to his 24" wheeled bike.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    If there is room on the bars then you can mount it there, you can mount a normal bottle cage on a simple adapter such as this: http://www.evanscycles.com/products/bon ... t-ec036159

    A Specialized Zee side-loading cage might work on the frame... as long as the bottle will fit between the frame tubes you will be OK. They can be got for about £5 - and I think they do both left and right handed versions. My son has one on his 13.5" Rockhopper.

    Thanks for the reply but the frame doesn't have bottle mounts.

    I use the Bontrager bar mount on my fixed, which doesn't have braze-ons for a cage. Works really well, dirt cheap and looks OK.

    How about one of them seat tube mounted triathlon-style bottle holders?
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.
