Sorry, the cage comment was just a light hearted observation from some US reviews demanding 2 bottle cage mounts on certain frames. A stupid comment not a criticism- now I read it back it looks pretty daft.
It is really a great robust and practical yet light build that you would feel happy riding anywhere at anytime and have full confidence in the bike. I would be more than happy to have that as the one do it all bike and be very happy- lucky customer!
I did not take it as bad. I could not see drinking from a water bottle from under the frame.
