You need a hose clamp. Wrap the tube with
handlebar tape to protect the paint. Also,
clamp on tape has a much higher co-efficient
of friction than clamp on hard surface.

I attached two bottle cages this way late in
the twentieth century, and haven't thought
about them since.


Good idea, I'll try that next. The hose clamp
is an underrated commodity when it comes
to bikes.


Not by Joerg! ;-)
