Is it blasphemy if I run Specialized cages, helmet and computer on my Supersix? I need new cages and dont see anything I like other than the the Spec. Rib Cages. Part of the reason too is I can get a good deal on the components. What do you guys think? And well I love my S-Works helmet. But will probably aquire a TT2 also.

I see a couple tour teams run Spesh helmets and they don't run Spesh bikes.

I'm running a Toupe Team saddle on my Six13.

I had one of their computer on my bike...i hated it. Got a Cateye.

I don't see anything wrong with it. Just don't go crazy.:D

C'mon there's plenty of choice without resorting to a 'rival' manufacturer!

I've no problem with you dressing up in what you want, but have some respect for your bike!
Ive got taos and my lbs bent them, so they are messed up. Carbon seems likes its gona be fragile. Also I think white cages will look badass on the matte black. If I get carbon its gona Spec for sure cause I can get an excellent deal on em. Same deal with the comp. Appreciate the opinions fellas thanks. Ill be sure to post a pic my ***** bike if I end up getting the stuff. Im def getting the TT2, hopefully Ill have money to get that custom painted.

I run an S-WORKS crankset on my CAAD9, specialized tires, bontrager cages, raceface stem, specialized bars, and a ritchey seatpost.

Run whatever works best.

i hate those plastic rib cages, they NEVER give up your bottle, so many times i've hit my finger on my TT or the bottle against it trying to pull it out. and they look funny on anything other than spec bikes... jmo

[email protected] has the rib cages, and I think his Super is the best looking one Ive seen on the forum, azracers is a close second IMO. Ill try em out, if they dont work out I guess ill go with black tacx taos.

How do you like those cages? I want to get them but they seem flimsy.
i have a pair of generic carbon fiber cages from ebay. $24 shipped for 2. They are as strong as my LOOK CF cages. I got the side loaders and they weigh 18g each on my home scale. They fit my thick polar insulated bottles snugly. Entry and exit are easy.

I like my cages so far. Fairly cheap and do the job well.

They have a firm hold without being over tight.

I tried the Rib Cages and though that they held the bottle too tight.
