This isn't the lightest bottle cage, but for the majority of riders this is a robust and affordable bottle cage that will hold your bottle in place. Not exactly cutting edge tech here guys.
Best value of any cage I've used. I have tried many other cheap options (can't justify spending more than $10 on a fancy carbon or titanium cage, myself) and none are as reliable as this one. Should last you a long while. And a few color options to boot! What's not to like?
This bottle cage is very light and I found nothing wrong with it. If you want to waste your money you can spend a lot more on gimmick bottle holders and get nothing better in performance. Put your money into high quality tires or high performance wheels and don't waste it on expensive, fancy looking bottle holders that offer nothing more than this product.
I've bought a fair amount of stuff from Bike Tires Direct and always got a good deal and excellent service. Even when I had to return a pump because I initially ordered the wrong size. But I got this for my tractor - for the hot summer days in a a different saddle. Easily mounted and holds my bike water bottle securely with lots of jostling.
I bought 3 of these... They are not as sturdy as the one I am replacing. First ride the cage gives so that the bottle is not held as securely as I would like. The cage bends too easily.
I got one of these my mistake when my LBS replaced a stipped water bottle cage boss on my bike. He added on a Comp cage. I took it off when I got home and threw in a box with about a dozen other cages I have tried. I got tired of having my water bottles work loose and tried the Comp cage. Works great. Strong, holds bottle, works well with the Camelbak Podium bottles. It's not high tech carbon, stainless steel, ti, or some other space age material. It's just a sturdy cage that has been around forever. I just ordered another one.
