a 83Motobecane and I can’t mount a water bottle cage because there aren’t any holes in the frame to screw in the cage.
I really need water on my rides, How can I mount a cage on this frame?
Installing water bottle cage and having the problem with screws holes? Let’s see how to install a water bottle holder without screws.

Using Hose Clamps
I’ve seen is to use hose clamps to attach a bottle cage to the frame. Hose clamps are what (used to?) attach a car’s radiator hose to the radiator, if you’ve seen that. If you don’t want to get scratched and you have an old inner tube, you can slice that into strips to pad between the clamps. Thus the frame so the paint doesn’t get scratched.
Use a screw less bottle holder
If you use a screwless bottle cage, then you don’t need to get any pain for holes. You can use the SODIAL Bottle Cage Bicycle that allows you to hold a bottle without making holes or using a screw.
Its arms can wrap around the bottle and provide a secure and firm grip so you do not have to worry about it falling out. It can be rotated into 360 degrees. It is strongly preferred for perfect for mountain bikes, bicycles, children’s bicycles, wheelchairs etc.
Stay hydrated wherever your ride!
you can use Lumintrail Lightweight Bike Water Bottle Cage Holder as it also can be mounted without doing holes. It fits most standard size water bottles. It is ultra lightweight and secure. 2 mounting screws for attaching the cage to bike frame is included. It comes in 4 colors- Black, Blue, Red and Silver. Its Dimensions are 6″ x 3.5″ x 3″.
