Problems with Gas

So, I have struggled with how to carry my gas bottle. The old panniers had a perfect external pocket, the new ones have none.

So after extensive Internet searching, I decided to get a wire cage and stretch it. Works well.

Unfortunately, that took up one of my water bottle spaces and the third was too small after adding fenders, so a Jerry rig was in order. The third cage just needed to be moved back. A very sweet person I know gave me a small strip of aluminum, into which I drilled three holes. The cage is attached through two holes and the bar is attached through two holes, meaning the cage, bar and frame do share one of the holes. I rode today with no troubles.
