Reporting back...the RoadRunner bag works well, but damn if my back and shirt didn't get sweaty as hell where the bags rests on my back., due to a lack of ventilation there. I will have to find another solution, at least for summertime riding. Does anyone make a water bottle that is strapped to the top frame tube?

I got these water bottle mounts from Velo Orange. They work like a charm and look good doing it.
They are 31.8mm.
83

the old lady made me buy a new cage as she said I can’t have a $10 cage on a $4400 bike.

I may swing it down to the underside of the top tube. When coming down off the seat to plant my feet on the ground, there is very little real estate between my crotch and the bottle. I have to stop anyways to take a pull of water.

Here’s a handlebar mounted water bottle holder option for carrying water bottles. It’s not as elegant as the bike but works well. It can be mounted so the bottle is on either side of the handlebar. I‘d be cool if they came in anodized colors but they don’t. I think I’ll soften some of the sharp edges and paint it. I got this at Velo Orange. Handlebar to Bottle Cage Mount

The otherday I heard someone said that this is the equivalent of selling you an RC car and tell you "batteries are not included" and since then I cannot stop seeing it that way :unsure:
A battery is essential for a RC car whereas water is not essential for riding a bike but definitely helpful. I find I need much less water riding an electric bike vs a conventional bike. I can ride 10 miles and not drink once but of course it doesn’t really get hot here in Anchorage.
cheers
