in this step, you must analize the frame scructure ans clearances for a waterbotle holder.
There are a few requirements to a good place in bike for a waterbotle holder, lets say:
1)that the place you find must not interfere with folding process.
2)waterbotle must be on a easy to reach place.
3)it cannot hit your legs while ciclying.
