I use to have the BTP 15g cage but they broke on me. Any other suggestions? Thank you.

And I would like to learn about light bottle cages, that fit with all kinds of bottles and not only special ones, as the cages of btp or tune.... I was thinking about the Tacx Tao. Does anyone know something about it?

B-T-P makes also a 15 gram cage for standard bottles.

Now I have on my bike the Elite patao carbon, it´s not the lightness but I thing it´s the best, 23gr. of carbon fiber with a good look, it´s strong and you have it on two diameters.
Only one bad thing, the price....about 60€.

One thing about the tacx tao, only works well with tacx bottles, the other bottles moves on the tacx. One important thing to be sure in your deccision.

The 15g model don't last very long but they say that they changed to model and now it is stronger

They break! Hence the whole point of this post. I got about 2 months, 3,000 miles on them before the first one broke. Then about a week later the other. If you ever look at one in person you'll see the low quality and inconsistency in there production. All it is is hand cut carbon fiber and is done very slopily, not evenly cut, not by a long shot! To sum it up, they look crapy, work half way decent, and don't last.

P.S.
I just ordered some IRD 16G carbon cages, will let you know how they are when I get them Thursday.

i've got the elite inox gel cages...i think 38g. so not the lightest, but definitely the best. my bottles don't make any noise or ever fall out on nasty sections of road, plus my bottles aren't all f'd up with that silvery/black crap--or really scratched up from those overpriced-un-aero carbon pieces (although they do look hot!)
