@Fiery: The mandibles are simply a bit too tight for the bottles I use (camelback podiums). The thin arms actually kind of "crush" in the bottles and they just aren't as easy to get in and out as I'd like. The Dave-O's have wider arms and whether it's because of that or maybe they are just a tad bigger, they feel a bit less snug with the same bottles. Yet still seem like they'd hold a bottle very firmly for the type of riding I do.

I went from Dave-O's to King Ti's and now my bottles get squashed...but I've wanted King's since I was a teenager so they're here to stay...

:) isn't that a bit like sayin "I went from those shoes to these and now my feet get squashed but I've wanted a pair of these shoes since I was a teenager so they're here to stay".

The mandibles are fine cages but I think the Dave-O's will suit me more, particularly if I continue using the CamelBak podium bottles. Other bottles are less tight, for sure. In fact, these bottles won't even fit in a Campy 80th Anniversry cage which has an enclosed loop around the bottle with no room to give.

Squashed or tight bottles I can live with...squashed feet I couldn't...

Saddle bag just in case you puncture the trainer?

First one was for the 3T stem. This one, for the ENVE. Nicest Garmin mount to date.

Actually bought last week, but the shoes only arrived today. Sorry for the poor photo quality, I don't have a proper camera at hand at the moment.

In the last 2 years I have done about 15000 km on the road, and I've flatted twice. Racing and training mtb's I've flatted once.

I've also done about 250 hours on the trainer in the same 2 years, and blown 4 tires. Figure that one out.
