Cup Holder?

Looking for a good cup holder for my coffee/beer. Gimbaled would be nice. I'm also having a tough time finding cup holders that have a well engineered clamping mechanism - most seem to rotate on the bar eventually.
 
I like the ones from Public Bikes. Not gimbaled. Secure. Make sure you have a good lid on your cup. Even a tiny ventalation hole will slosh coffee on your bike.

I just did a search for handlebar cup holder and saw a ton. Make sure that it is turns at the same axis as the stem, facing you, for stability.
 
Those Looney adjustable cages are sturdy. On my beach cruiser I have those silly coconut bottle holders. I got lucky and found some at a hardware store with nice clamps! I picture dumb though, sorry.
 
I had a similar issue with rotating bike cup holder. Check out RAM Mounts, they have gimbaled cup holders with a sturdy clamping mechanism. They're known for their durability and flexibility in mounting options.

I've had good luck with this one:


As the product photos suggest, it can handle containers that are any combo of rigid, straight-sided, and oversized, like a typical stainless thermos. Any of those attributes would be a deal-killer for a regular bottle cage.

The twist cinch couldn't easier to use and is very secure — even on bumpy trails. Would buy again.

Standard frame mount only, but others might have ideas for mounting it on handlebars.

I use the RAM cup holder mentioned by @Mikehemis above:

It's gimbaled, and has a removeable foam insulator for aluminum cans.

I attach it to the bars with these RAM clamps. They hold securely and can articulate into almost any position:

And


The handlebar ball mount can also be used with many other RAM products to hold cell phones, GPS, lights, etc.
 
What about a beer hat ??

It would be as Gimbaled as your your head so when you start spilling 🍻 it's time to stop drinking. 😂
