I'm new to semi-serious road riding and I can't figure out what the second set of bosses on my Giant OCR1 is for as I can't fit a standard water bottle cage. Here is a pic from there website.

The bosses on the down tube fits a standard water-bottle cage no problem. The bosses on the seat tube don't seem to fit a water-bottle cage at all (upside down or rightside up). I've tried with and without the spacers for the seat tube. The cage just hits the down tube. Do I need a special cage? Can someone help here?


thanks,
linuxted

Where you able to use both sets of bosses with cages and water bottles at once?

Thanks. I'll try again. Maybe my cage isn't so standard. I have the small frame by the way

tacx tao's seem to work well with the TCRs (at least in M/L/XL)
