Does anyone use these bottle cage: Here, here, here, and here. They look great, the reviews seem pretty solid, and they're much lighter than the Elite plastic cages at half the price.

I have experience with #4 and I can say that it works well, won't eject your bottles, but will scuff your bottles.

Before buying ıbera alloy bottle cages how does this sound to you?

No name full carbon 15gr-pcs Chinese cages with excellent customer reviews for 10 bucks-pcs which includes registered track able shipping?

I have just bought one pair from China.
I will end up with 12gr-pcs after some light tuning.

Sounds tempting... could you PM a link? Alibaba and ebay seem like crapshoots.

I'd appreciate that PM too - as I'm getting rid of my elites as one just broke on me.

Hi guys,

The HK Flyxii Co. bottle cages from China have arrived.I had ordered two cages.
Were advertised with 23gr. +/- 2gr.
Weights on my scale are :14.7gr and 14.9gr. w/o bolts.
A good deal for 21 bucks for two cages including shipping. :D

Not tested on bike yet but tested secure hold of a 550 bottle and I am confident that they will keep bottles in place like any other light weight cages . Fully satisfied. :D

Bura: are your china cages holding up still and would you recommend them overall? If so, where can I find them. IN the pic they seem to look good and at the weight and price, what's not to like as long as they hold up decently and hold bottles well.
