5 Bottle Mounts on the Sex Machine

I am starting to explore new areas and some of them can be remote so access to stores along the route could be limited or non-existent during the Pandemic. So I mounted two more water bottles holders on the fork of my bike.

There are mounts there but not doubles intended for water bottle holders. I used the bolt for the top and then zip tied the bottom.

Previously, I had also replaced my chain and cassette then went out for a test ride. The bottle holders on the forks are great, however, my chain kept popping off the back gears when I applied a lot of pressure. I took the bike to Shawn at the Bicycle Center and he checked the hanger alignment and then I tried it on Elbow Hill near the shop and no joy. Shawn it must be the cassette.  Then I took it to Brad who said the chain wasn't aligned properly. He adjusted it and I test rode it and still no joy.  Not sure what I am going to do for my big ride in New Hampshire on the coming weekend.
