Neat and functional bottle cage – Aluminum Alloy Mount Holder for Bike Canteen - Silver Reviews

posted by Randal40 on 03/06/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Light (50g), sturdy. Free of annoying graphics or logos.
Cons:
A couple of small patches where the anodising seems to be missing on each side. The top edge of the baseplate is fairly sharp, and can snag the bottom edge of a bottle as you put it in. Probably worth smoothing off with a nail file or similar.
Other:
The bottle sits fairly high relative to the mounting screws; this can be an advantage if space is limited (e.g.when fitting two bottle cages). If you need to alter this it may be possible to force the baseplate up the rails and re-stake it with a centrepunch.
Bottomline:
A good, conventional, no-nonsense bottle cage for 75mm dia. bottles.
