You notice the things that are wrong but rarely those that work. Many curious people have asked us: why THREE screws for each bottle cage instead of two as the vast majority of manufacturers use? Because with three screws you can decide which position to choose for the bottles according to the load requirements.

The position of the screws has been designed to leave a few millimeters between the various joints so as to make the most of the spaces, recalculating it for each size because if the size of the triangle changes, the way to position the bottles also changes to make the most of the space.

 

It is another of the small Locomotive attentions that many other chassis do not have: the difference, however, becomes noticeable only when you try to insert two water bottles under a framebag and you will find that what seemed obvious on a Locomotive cannot be done.
