looks great, would not change anything concerning the design. nose is often a weak point, is there any long-term-experience concerning durability?

Looks nice!
I would just wonder if it really clamps a bottle for sure? I don't care if there are cages that are as light or around that weight, they need to hold the bottle.

How about including a recessed screw socket (and include the bolts) so everything sits flush and the bolts don't rub against the bottle.

Another idea might be to make a tab on the top side similar to your lower tab. The top tab would secure the top side of the bottle.

It clamps bottles sure. I tested the clamping force with a cage without nose - even without the nose the bottle does not fall out.
The nose is better than the old one, because of its high profile.

Very nice. Very weenie. Great for smooth roads. Probably wouldn't hold the bottle on my crappy roads.

i have no doubt that it clamps bottles for shure. tune uni looks quite minimalistic as well, strongest carbon bottle cage i used.

Hi Carbonwork
I watch yours ads at ebay, i saw other model with 4g for conical bottles like Tune Wasserträger skyline (but more tiny/minimalistic). You dont make anymore?
And how about lightweight carbon brake pads that i saw too?
