Help- install rivnuts on steel frame

Recommended Posts

I have a steel CX bike that only has holes to mount a water bottle cage on the downtube. I bought a Two Fish bottle cage strap but I find it to be finicky on this bike. I'd like to drill my set tube and install proper rivnuts for a second bottle. Anyone have tools and experience to do this at home?

Why not try something like this:

I have a Two Fish mount that works just fine on my mtb because it's a snug fit on the wider seat tube on that bike. It feels floppy on the narrow steel seat tube of my CX bike and I doubt the similar options will be any more secure. I want to bolt on something solid and permanent.

Upon further research, it looks like I can install rivnuts without the fancy tool.
