What is the short end of the stick? And as a side note, have you ever read the explanation behind the origins of ‘let’s blow this popsicle stand’? Holy crap. If you believe that story, you should probably swipe right when you come across Chanel Rion on Tinder. The short end of the stick has to do with poop, as so much engaging history does. It has to do with pre-toilet paper times, peasants, and personal hygiene. You can extrapolate the rest.
Thing of it is, I was going to say smaller riders get the short end of the stick when it comes to bottle cages, but now I have re-assess that.
Let’s say that small riders have a hard time finding bottle cages that let them easily get a water bottle in and out. Small frames mean you have less room to maneuver said bottle around. When you go to pull the water bottle out, it whacks the top tube. There are many plastic or crab-on fiber cages that cost way more than the 4 cents they cost to make that are ‘side loading’ for small frames. They all look like a manta ray drawn by a blindfolded 5 year old, and hold a bottle like a cat holds a fountain pen.
You can mount the King cage biased to the left or right or the center, like a menage trois between Fox, NPR and Wonkette. It loads like a normal bottle cage, and looks pretty normal too. It’s made of salvaged Ti straws stolen from hipsters at a Brooklyn vegan place. Not really on the hipster straw note, but it really is made of salvaged Ti! The only Ti you can feel good about buying.
