Strengths:    Light, cheap, secure, won't scratch water bottles, don't need adjusting to stay tight.

Weaknesses:    Takes some getting used to because it's a tight squeeze to get bottles in there.

Bottom Line:   
I got these cages because one of my alloy cages broke and I wanted something that wouldn't scratch the logos off my water bottles. This cage is light, secure, and it doesn't scratch the logos off. It's also really cheap. I have yet to race with these but I'm looking forward to not dropping bottles and these are lighter than what I had.

Strengths:    looks, weight, and no more bent cages

Weaknesses:    very tight to get bottle in or out, could just be my large bottle

Bottom Line:   
very nice cage first one that i do not have to bend back just about every ride.
Now that i have a camelback i just use a bottle for short trips.

S-Works Rib Cage vs Normal Rib Cage

So I was wondering if anyone can give me input on these cages? The S-Work ones are $15 but why? They're shaped differently but weigh the same. Anyone have either of these? Like them?Read More »

Anyone use S-WORKS Carbon Rib Cage

Hi does anyone here have these cages? It sounds like with the plastic ones people have a hard time pulling their bottles out of the cages. I wanted to know if anyone has experienced anything similar with the carbon cages. [IMG]http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/SBCEquipPopup.jsp?equipimage=/OA_ME ... Read More »
