Can someone help me find a legitimate place to purchase some Emporelli bottle cages? I attempted to buy some from Fair Wheel Bikes :D (Great Shop!) but they are out of stock in black and don’t know when they will be getting more… I have attempted to contact Stealth Cycling after a Google search but can’t get anyone to answer the phone… Looking for recommendations for a reputable vendor for these cages –

Thanks WW’s :beerchug:

Save yourself the grief of loosing bottles and broken cages (as well as a bit of cash) and just get some Arundel Mandibles. You won't regret the change...

I agree that the Mandibles are a great cage - I have a pair currently -

I just think the Emporelli cages will go nicely with my recent build -

A Matte Carbon Z5 with classic logos :thumbup:

Has anyone done business with this Stealth Cycling? again... - I find it a little questionable that no one answers the phone.....

I just bought something from Stealth this month and it was a perfect transaction.

Thanks Johnny Rad - I will give them a try - Just a little "gun shy" as I was stung by a different web shop recently....

Emporellis are on the way!

Frame was 890g in a ML or size 56 - that includes seat clamp, bottle cage bolts & cable adjusters - This is an amazing looking frame in person - can't wait to get it built - still waiting on a few items

I had bought some stuff from stealthcycling.com in the past and everything was fine. Recently I bought again from stealthcycling.com, this time my credit card was charged and they were unresponsive. My credit card company was not able to get a hold of them and they canceled the charge.

Pfft I've been running a pair for the last year and they are totally sweet.
I've dropped one bottle and it was a full 700ml bottle and the pot hole I hit was soo large I'm lucky I didn't screw my front wheel...

Mandibles are common and freking ugly

The emporelli cages had some issues once but they have been ironed out. If you can justerfy the cost they are very nice cages. The fact you can front and top load em is a great feature that most other carbon cages don't have plus 13-15g each what's not to like?
