Minoura SBH-80

$7, Minoura.jp
The draw: Most affordable rear bottle mount

Affordability isn’t the only appeal of this system: For many people it includes everything needed in a rear-mounted hydration storage solution. A simple clamp affixes the SBH-80 to the rear of the saddle rails, and the unit holds one bottle cage of your choice. It fits many saddles and seat posts (but not all, so double-check compatibility with your setup). Its location, however, means a saddlebag can’t be mounted while using this carrier.
