B-Rad, or Bottle Relocation and Accessory Devices, allows you to customize the water bottle mounts of your bikes frame so you can reposition water bottles, and make space to carry more accessories on your frame and get them off your back. At the core of the B-Rad system are the baseplates. Choose one of the 3 sizes of baseplates to create an extremely flexible system for organizing on-bike bottle and accessory storage using bottle cage mounts. This is especially useful for bikes with odd frame shapes or endurance cyclist whose adventures can put them out on the trail for days at a time. As with all Wolf Tooth components the B-Rad Basemounts are built tough as nails, and made for the long haul.
This 2 slot base with 2 threaded mounting holes is the shortest base designed for moving a bottle around to an optimal location on a smaller or dual suspension frames or to mount B-RAD accessories to on an unused set of bottle cage mounts.
This 3 slot base with 4 threaded holes provide additional adjustment and mounting options vs the B-RAD 2. A very typical application would be to mount a bottle cage in the forward threaded holes with a B-RAD accessory tucked behind it. Addtionally, this mounts perfectly to triple bottle mounts on frames and forks. The B-RAD 3 includes zip ties, channels for the zip ties, and closed cell neoprene foam pad for secure mounting.
This 4 slot base is the longest base with 9 threaded holes for the ultimate flexibility and capacity when bike packing, touring, commuting or just exploring on 2 wheels. It is long enough to mount 2 smaller bottles inline or multiple accessories. The B-RAD 4 includes zip ties, channels for the zip ties, and closed cell neoprene foam pad for secure mounting.
Here is a useful document that if you print this in 1-1 format you can cut out the 3 B-RAD bases to see what fits on your bike.

I've tried the 3 and now the B-Rad 4 base mount. I like to race local enduro races and compete so my review is from the perspective of an enduro racer, not a bike-packer. I've been trying to ditch the backpack for a while but never could securly fit everything on my bike to where it wasn't going to damage my frame yet still be accessible until now. I have a large Knolly Warden Carbon and can now easily bring everything I need. Using just the holes for the water bottle mount I can easily slide the B-Rad rail up and down for the perfect fit.
Currently I have my Fix-It-Sticks attached at the bottom with a water bottle cage mounted on top of that, in the middle I have an adapter that allows 2 CO2 canisters to be threaded on, and up top I have a spare tube with tire levers attached using the Woolftooth B-Rad strap. It took a couple tries to get it all to fit and with a couple micro adjustments but when I was happy and tightened everything up it's been perfect on the trail. There's lots of adjustability with this setup. My setup currently fits a 20oz water bottle with ease. The 24oz insulated Camel Back bottle fits but the top touches my spare tube. (If your frame has more room than mine the tube could be mounted higher up)
Overall this is awesome, no more backpack, all my necessary gear, not very heavy, and looks clean. It may not be as concealed as OneUp but doesn't require tapping anything and the overall cost is lower.
Positives: - I can finally ditch my backpack, even on longer rides - allows for more fitment possibilities than the 3, more threaded holes to allow for a very custom fit. - solid and clean construction, not very noticable on the frame - shifter and brake cables can be zip-tied to it for clean cable routing (a few spots where it was milled out for that purpose) - lighter than a backpack, comparable to a fanny pack. - perfect for those who want to load their frames up with everything and allows for other attachments (strap, double bottle, fix it sticks, pumps, etc.)
Negatives: - not as enduro as using duct tape and a banana. - bike has to have a water bottle mount - may be too long for some frames (go with the B-rad 3) and may not fit well on very curved frames
What a great idea and one of the best mods I've made to this bike. The only thing that I would do different, is I would have bought the largest rail so I would have an additional position option for my offset bottle mounts while using a short frame bag.
I am running a B-rad 4 on my carbon fork attached using the single pannier mount hole along with 4 heavy duty zip ties and double sided tape. I am also running a B-Rad 2 and B-Rad 3 on this bike to make room for two bottles and a half frame bag. They are lightweight and high quality. Disclamier: I had to widen the zip tie slots to accommodate the wider super duty zip ties.
I use the B-rad system on a couple of long-distance adventure/gravel bikes which allows me to run two bottles on the downtube using their double-bottle mount adapter and the Lezyne bottle holders. It creates a solid platform for gravel/trail and allows for three-bottles inside the triangle for most hardtails and you might be able to get a narrow frame pack to sit between them. Get the long B-rad though as with the short one, out of saddle pedaling might have your calves rubbing the bottles as they are not far enough towards the steer-tube..
I hate using a pack and this is a great option to fit your bottle cage and (with the accessory add-on) a strap for a tube, minimal tools, etc. It can get pretty pricey for all the add-on options, which is my only complaint. Works like a charm and Wolftooth quality.
