    Back to the cages?

    I finally caved and put a water bottle cage back on my bike. I got rid of them a couple of years ago, and I have to say that the bike is much cooler looking without them. Sigh. Sometimes I hate practicality (on longer rides I did the Camelbak thing - and have finally gotten sick of it). Maybe I can at least find some good looking cages and or water bottles. Any suggestions?

    I bought these a few months ago and love them.

    If you are willing to wait, and like the way they look, these are outrageous at half the weight for $5 more:

    Those are the ones I wanted but the salesguy said that they haven't had them in months and didn't expect them any time soon.

    And if anyone b!tches about bottles flying out of these stupid light weight cages, don't believe them. They hold Tacx bottles just fine.
