During the race season both my CX bikes are free from cages. Off season I just put a cheap cage on just in case. Cages get in the way when shouldering the bike.

blingy blingy

No cages on my cross bikes, bottle goes in the back pocket or in a little backpack on long off road training rides. King stainless for training and King Ti for racing on my road bike. (yes, I have special racing cages... with ti bolts to hold them on of course!).

Yes, I've been using King cages for a couple of years now (all of my bikes have 1 or 2 mounted).

They hold well (really only a concern for the MTB racing/training/riding I do) and don't mark-up your bottles.

And, King stands behind them....after a couple of years, I ended-up breaking one of my cages on my MTB...a quick email to King...they said just to send it back. They quickly mailed me 2 extra cages.

Considering the number of cages I was going through in a season prior to getting Kings (MTB'ing is really hard on cages), I'm very happy that I finally bought the Kings.

What cages are you guys using? I've been liking my profile design cages for road use...what else is out there?
Like many here, I took off the cages for racing. I had some dry-mouth during one race from my asthma medicine. I just filled two gel vials with water, one in each end pocket, in case I needed it. Less water than a bottle, but also less weight swinging around on running sections.

Cateye cages

Most of the year except for cross season. I run King cages on the road and mountain, but I like the plastic Cateyes on the cross frame because the hold a bottle awesome, are cheap and light, are practically industructable, and if I want to practice shouldering they smoosh up and don't hurt my ribs and back, plus they always go back to their original shape.
