The velcro strap alone does not provide enough stability to keep the holder upright. E.g. when loaded with a full drink bottle or cup, it easily slides sideways down the aluminium tube (which normally has a roughly 45 degree angle) - there simply is not enough traction. And it also swivels around the tube (the bottle remains hanging diagonally) unless there is something horizontal that the bottle can lean on to. So basically the only place I could use the holder is where the tubes from the handlebar and from the back wheels meet. The connection stops it from sliding further down and the lower horizontal tube then supports it.
The holder itself seems to be sturdy enough, so no problems there. But the strap remains an issue, al teast for me.
