I am looking forward to trying them out. The real test is if they keep the bottles secure.

Looks nice...but I already see users of Polar and CamelBack bottles complaining the tight fit! Should work fine with normal bottles.....

They only fit tacx bottles:

Elite jossanova too Loose
Specialized Purist bottle too Loose
Ax-lightness bottle - ok - made by tacx
Schmolke bottle - ok - made by tacx
lightweight bottle - ok - made by tacx
http://r2-bike.com/procraft-trinkflasch ... til-WTF1_1 - way too loose

was a liitle disapointed by that.

Krackor: Talking Chinese Flyxi cages.Yes?
Though I have made them lighter so at some points they may be somehow weaker than the original without holes in them...they are keeping my Elite bottles in place .Very happy with them. :D
Note that they weigh 15gr ex works.
