If you ride smooth roads and want a traditional look, this cage is perfect. Beautifully made, strong, light enough for all but the weeniest of weight weenies. (And for those people there's the ti version.) I've been running these on a couple of my bikes for many years with no issues.
If you ride rougher roads (or gravel, or MTB), think about the King Cage Iris -- same weight, same quality, and grips bottles a little more tightly.
These are good quality cages that look good too. I like that they are handmade in the US.
Nothing surprising, here. I needed great bottle cages, and these are what I wanted. It’s a bonus that I can support long time cycling vendors, a small business, and Colorado-based to boot (Durango area).
I’ll pick up more every time I need cages.
Love this cage, super strong, but I can still bend it a bit to get the hold I want. I used this kind of cage for decades from the 1970s through the 90s, but they were aluminum; they bent all the time and marked up my bottles. These SS cages do not! I was considering Ti, but not worth the $$ in my opinion, these are plenty light and strong.
My only comment is that the curve that holds down the bottle is too shallow, and it tends to let the bottle move side-to side a little. I have tried to bend it myself but the metal is very strong.
I highly recommend.
Thank you for the review! We really appreciate it! Next time you purchase a cage send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can do a custom cage with extra bend in the top for you.
Simply the best. Classic. I have them on all my bikes. Highly recommended.
