Have an older bike, and was on a sportive (100m), and needed to carry a second bottle.
Rubber, fastens securely, is sticky to frame, and hasn't budged a millimetre.
It feels secure, but when a full bottle is added it would slip down. So I tried to tighten the straps, it's the only adjustment available, and a strap snapped. So one for the bin. I love Decathlon and can't think of many other shops I could go into and get one of these, but it doesn't do its job.
If it has snapped when in use then please return it to us for a refund/exchange.
Thank you for your feedback and I will forward it on to the person in charge of this item at b'Twin

Simple bracket. Easy to fit and good value.
I use these on the forks of my aluminium bike. As the forks taper it's hard to stop them slipping down no matter how tight I pull the straps but a cable tie round the brake mounting holds them up just fine and I've done 1000s of miles with them.
for bikes with only one cage holder this solves the issue perfectly and is non intrusive excellent purchase
Doesn't stay in place and keeps sliding down...after two minutes, it touched the chain wheel !
Thank you for reviewing the universal bottle cage mount, I have heard of this issue before but it usually because the straps haven't been pulled tight enough, I'd suggest to try that then if the problem still persists then return it to your local store with your receipt.

I mounted two 1kg water bottles to front forks. no slip despite doing stairs at speed, drop offs. if there is any slip i will come back and report. Just make sure you really stretch the link to make sure goes on as tight as possible. You can usually get it one more notch than you think. a good thing is that the bottle cage covers up the access to release it. So someone cannot easily steal it in an instant with no tools. You have to undo the bolts and remove the cage first! This is a little fiddly due to access (with allen keys) and would put thieves off. Fit my 32mm stants of my revs easily and would go bigger! Allows me to use a frame bag for bikepacking (great for storing heavy items) - and still carry plenty of water. Looks like it would fit quite small tubes too. Much better than the one Halfords sell as you cannot re-use the Halfords (I was told) you have breaky it to remove it (a special one off zip tie is used). With this one you can re-use on other bikes / move about any no. of times.
two 1kg water bottles to front forks. no slip
It is possible to mount both a water bottle and small pump on this and still not catch your legs on it as you pedal
No mark on the frame + Economical and practical
