Just clamp to the seat post, fill up the bottles and pop the tops and go!

Any problems with that?
Nope, used to use that set-up on stand-up scooters. Biknut has a thread on how he did his.....I'm sure he'll tell ya all about it......

A sense of humor costs nothing, why don't people use them more often?
