5.0 out of 5 stars Elite Custom race bottle cage MATT BLACK, 7 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elite Custom Race Composite Bottle Cage (Sports)
First of all, the item was delivered swiftly. Only, it was the wrong item. I ordered the MATT black finish but got the GLOSS black finish. I e-mailed Customised bikes to inform them of the mistake and they told me that the MATT finish was out of stock and i should return the GLOSSY one if i wasnt happy. hmmm. lost a star there then.
No bother, I kept the GLOSSY one and its been fine apart from NOT BEING the MATT finish. It feels quite snug to get a regular bottle in, but i can vouch for it NOT losing a bottle on the road, under the harshest laboratory conditions.
even when crashing into a fence at around 30mph, the bottle stayed in the cage and i went over the handle bar. As i went sailing through the air i spotted it and thought "bloody hell, thats a good bottle cage...would be even better and get five stars if it were a MATT finish...
at that point i face planted and drifted off into a dream for a while. But when i returned, good god, my bottle didnt have a mark on it. It just sat there all snug in its GLOSSY holder.
Now I wish they made really big ones to hold people like me in.

On second thoughts, ive decided its not the bottle cages fault that its GLOSSY.
Ive awarded it five stars cos thats how many i was seeing at the time of the crash. ill take one off customised bikes tho.

Please can you write some more reviews - you've added much colour to my bottle cage selection dilemna... I have heard that this cage might be TOO snug, but there again that might be the MATT finish being oh so much grippier.
