Lookin for a cup holder for the passenger. I've done some shopping, but so far nothing seems to catch my eye. I want it to look good plus function properly...keep cold, cold and hot, hot. Suggestions???

Thanks,

Donny,

I put armrests on for theboss & then she wanted an insulated drink holder.

I got her the 32 oz "Butler Mug" & attached it to the armrest.

Also, I put one on the front left handlebar.

She likes being able to swivel it & use the straw without having to lift it out of the holder.

The "Butler" brand is a bit pricey, but it seems to be the best, for me. The 32 oz is way better than the 20 oz, since they tend to spit some if too full.

Thanks. The boss won't let me put arm rests on. She's a bit afraid of enclosed spaces (forgot what you call that) and she feels kinda trapped with arm rests.

I know the butler cups are great for insulation, but the large ones just look gaudy to me. I may have to just suck it up and put one on for her. They make a mount for a wing w/o armrests...may have to go that direction.

Clever. I'll have to check into that.

They make that same holderspecifically for the passanger. Mounts to the hand grip andattaches with a u-bolt. That's the only reason I purchased that one. No drilling, no wire ties and no arm rests needed..

That one from Cyclemax is popular & cost way less than the $60. Butler usually tries to get for the 20 or 32 oz, same price. You can also use your own insulated cup/mug.

Here is a pic of both of mine mounted...
