-1 for Wassertrager, don't understand these +s. Very poor finish and weight not up to today's ww standards :)
Had one and I wasn't happy at all (years ago).

IMO, there is no competition for Smud cages, in this category. I had his first version, few years ago. At that time, similar weight but much better finish than tune. Now using his 5g cages.
Very happy, they work perfectly and look very minimalistic which is a huge :thumbup: And you can get ud finish.


Only problem with them, at least for me, is getting a hold of the manufacturer. I have tried several times and nothing to this date. :noidea: :smartass: :noidea:

Tune skyline , only 4grms . I found that it sometimes was quite hard to get the bottle out, so I put a small bit of tape just where the screws [nylon screws in my case] are and it works perfect .

Tune or BTP cages are your best and lightest bet.

I lost a number of bidons from my Tune cages. Particularly the one on the seat tube. After I lost a spares canister, I had enough and changed to Mandible.

I think it helps if you don't fully fill your bottle, nevertheless I didn't find the Tune cages secure. Our bad roads don't help.

I have never lost a bottle with the Tune cages. not even when using them for MTB.

oh well, I better not typed this as people only tend to believe the bad reviews.
