" Probably one of the lightest and most pliable/forgiving bottle cages! "

The Review
It\'s an outstanding cage, Because bottles are not made to a standard circumference, this design and material has flex and holds the bottle extremely well. The welding is strong, and the design flexes to shape.

This feature becomes particularly significant when the rider uses stainless steel bottles like the Kleen Kanteen.

I highly recommend it.

I had two. I\'ve used it in all my cyclo-camping trips and my everyday commuter rides over the last 10 years of having them.

The only place on a touring bike with three bottle cage bosses where I would not use it is at the third bottle boss under the down-tube. A strong underslung cage would be better there.


Strengths
Flexible metallic strength. Classy fine welding. Very light even though it\'s not plastic.

Weaknesses
The flex makes it a bit precarious when located in a hanging position on the downtube of a touring bike, especially on rough terrain.

Duration of product used
More than 3 years

Bike Setup
Surly Long Haul Trucker size 60. 3 bottle cage bosses two in the traditional positions, one under the down tube.
