B-RAD (Bottle Relocation and Accessory Device) System
The B-RAD (Be-Rad) system begins with a series of slotted Mounting Bases. Available in three sizes, B-RAD bases can shift a bottle cage away from inconvenient rear shocks, add room for tools or tubes below a bottle cage, or even provide space for a second bottle on sufficiently-long downtubes.
Here is a useful document that if you print this in 1-1 format you can cut out the 3 B-RAD bases to see what fits on your bike.
Next you can mount various B-RAD accessories to your B-RAD base or bases. The B-RAD accessories improve or optimize bottle cage locations, add water/tool/spare parts capacity, and there are many more accessories coming in the future. Check out the pictures below for various examples of how B-RAD can be configured. If you have a unique B-RAD setup, send it our way so we can add it to this information page!
