Well the bontrager cages are a little beat up so looking for new cages. Anyone have any recommendations or have any luck with the cheap ones on eBay, They kind of look good.

Pair of mandibles is like what $120? Seems silly to spend that much on a nonfunctional part. Ebay away.

Bontrager rxl. Light, holds firm, and cheaper. Is that what you had?

Happy with Arundels.

Have you searched the multiple threads on this?

I've got a pair of ebay cages. 40g for the pair with bolts, paid $40 for them. 6 months in no problems. In fact I like them better than my old tao cages, where the tabs break off every 6 moths...

What about Tune cages? No one uses them? I bought theese: http://www.tune.de/de/tune-produkte/fla ... 0-wasserträger-uni
and I'm very happy with them. They work great even on bad roads with 0,7l bottles.

+1 on the Tune Wasserträgers! Had a pair for years, unfortunatly broke one on purpose because the alu bolt stuck to a Ti-frame, my bad not using any anti-seize compound so had to cut up the cage to be able to drill out the bolt. That one was still in use some 2 years, the other one has been going strong for about 5 years now on both the mountainbike and on the roadbike. Have to mention that for about 4 of those years it's had a bit of carbon chipped off, about 2x2mm wide and more than half way thru the carbon and it's still holding up well even on a mountainbike with 750ml bottle!

And it's like 27-30€, comes with a bottle, and weighs 9,5g incl. bolts! Only thing is, it only takes Tacx bottles, though I don't think anyone anywhere should have a problem sourcing those...

I'm sure the Arundels are slightly better, but at this price - at this weight - at this longevity, and the fact that it actually works great too, it's a freakin´ miracle of a bottle cage! My 2 c's.

EDIT: Oh right, not talking about the new Uni-version, but the old one that is sort of a closed loop.

Arundel Dave-O's or Manidbles. Can't go wrong. Do a Google search and you can find then for < $50 each on sale.
