Water Bottle solution by Monkii

After the Rapha Nocturne 2017 event last weekend I was contacted by http://www.cyclemiles.co.uk/ who have been a fan of the legend for awhile.

They asked if I would do a review on their Monkii Clip and Monkii V Cage.



Monkii V Cages
From what I can tell it looks like the Monkii Clip has had a design update.

The clip itself is pretty simple design and even simpler to attach to the handle bar stem of your Brompton.
Monkii Clip
The clip has rubber pads to protect the paint work of the stem and allen key bolts to tighten so its very secure once installed. I would still put some tape protection on the stem anyway as you can never have too much protection on the paint work for the legend.




Now the actual cage itself that can hold different sizes of bottles cause of the velcro and rubber grip. When the bottle is in its pretty hard for it to fall out, so pretty damn secure.

I got to say I'm liking this Monkii system for holding the water bottle, its solid and I have yet to hear of the bottle popping out as I know a few of my cycling buddies also have this system.

Thanks to http://www.cyclemiles.co.uk/ for sending me the Monkii system for me to review, I also hear that they are very big fans of the legend. Well who isn't? :D

  1. You say it keeps the bottle securely, but is it easy to get in and out without having stop and adjust straps, etc? Really looking for something to hold a bottle that I can use while on the move, without needing to muck about with straps and draw-strings.

    Also, having never seen the Legend in person, always wondered if it was a paint job, or a tape job. A beauty, all the same.

    1. You basically lift out the whole cage with bottle attached, drink then slide it back into place with a click. Takes a little getting used to but after awhile it becomes second nature.

  2. A tape job. Looks like electrical insulation tape
