Well I just got my BTP cages in. Looked good and came in at 34g including fastening hardware.

So far so good.

But just been for a ride on one of my standard routes (that is also used for the race I'm training for). There are some cattle grids on the route and crossing one, VERY cautiously (it had dew on it), one bottle ejected (didn't just come out, it flew) and the other only just stayed in the very edge of the cage.

So no good for me....

Back to the drawing board - what to use for light, race reliable cages that don't break at the bottom tab??? Any ideas - sorry to ask yet again one of the classic over asked questions :roll:

Hey Gearjunkie, don't give up the BTPs just yet. Sometime the clear on the inside surface of the cages can be slippery. Try taking some 200 grit sandpaper and roughing the surface and try the BTPs again, it wouldn't hurt to try. And maybe lightly sand the water bottle too. Wouldn't hurt also.

Thanks for the info. I'm really surprised and would not have guessed that design would have problems. The conical versions hold bottles so (too) tight.

I second the option of sanding the inside of the cages. I did this to mine and have been racing them now for 2 seasons and have yet to have any serious problems.

i would leave the BTP ones alone and sell them as new and buy some King ti cages--that will solve your problem.

@ Wrestlr: Thanks for the back up info. Did you have any problems before sanding? Also any serious bumps / grids / rail crossings on your rides?

@ Goldy: Appreciate the sentiment (I dig the minimal but functional thing and ti) but not sure would suit the rest of my bike. Thanks though!
