Strengths:    light, strong, aero, can still mout a bag underneath for training rides

Weaknesses:    need to buy additional adapter to screw inflator nozzle on if you don't strap it

Bottom Line:   
Not sure what foto is talking about in the mounting bracket being weak, the bolts and the bracket are strong enough to smash the rails on the saddle, very easy to intall, super aero, overall a great design and application

Strengths:    Light weight and good placement for aerodynamics.

Weaknesses:    Bracket too flexible and not strong enough for enough torque with the nut and bolt setup.

Bottom Line:   
The Bontrager Race X Lite Rear Cage Holder with Race X Lite carbon cages in themselves are very good and light except that the bracket that connects the cage holder to the saddle rails is too flexible (not carbon) and can not keep the rest of the unit from slipping down and creating problems keeping the water bottles in the cages.
