    6.5 g bottle cages

    I figured I'd give these a shot. I was using arundel mandibles and I'll hold on to those in case these don't meet my expectations. But they're under 16 g w/ bolts (for the pair). Could be interesting.

    Just don't fill your bottle to the top and save loads of grams

    This is pretty light. I'm guessing it's a new thing, I have a lot of weenies around me and I haven't seen these yet.

    I've been using them since the original post (around March 5). I use specialized purist bottles (26 oz) and I have not had a dropped bottle during that time. They've held up quite well.

    Well- seems as if they're the real deal. Still going strong, no issues, no drops.

    To save 20 grams?

    Dude you could shave one leg for that.
    Or like exfoliate one leg with some of your wife's exfoliating shower gel and scrubber.
    Or spit like twice.

    As requested by many of you:
    MTB version completed and available. With 8 grams significantly heavier - but more robust against abrasion by dirt / sand.

    Visually tubes are thicker and sufrace with frosted look. The standard version has also been optimized!

    1. Significantly more precise production using 3D pressure components.
    2. High-quality fiber material.
    3. Bottle-holding nose is slightly shortened.

    This is timely. I just received my 2nd pair-- this time the 8g cages - not a replacement- for another bike.

    Just do away with the bottle cages and carry your water bottle in your jersey pocket.
    Too old to ride plastic

    Yes- that's what we should do, just as soon as you start doing it. Send pics.

    I'm not concerned with the weight of my bottle cages, so waiting for me to start is a fools errand.
