So, I live in a forest with a mile of gravel road to get to asphalt. That led me to get a gravel bike (bike number 8). Then I needed a water bottle cage - my gravelly was a lightweight Specialized Diverge - in black - and the Blackburn Bottle cage was PERFECT! It works like a champ. I have used Blackburn products in the past with little to no disappointment, where they have exceeded expectations and this bottle cage is no exception!
I have a few of these water bottle holders. They are feather light and I find one of the best for getting your bottle in and out. I ordered the red one this time to match my red bike. Super looking. One of the best on the market.
I bought these mostly because the match the paint colors on my Cznnondale Synapse. But they are a good cage, too. Holds my bottles well, but still easy to retrieve and replace them.
I had some beat up old cages and was sick of looking at them on my nice bike so got some that matched and best of all they are very light and hold my bottles tight. A great buy!
they take great care of their customers
I purchased this to replace my steel cage that would squeak after a few rides and I lost a water bottle that fell out. My riding buddy convinced to look into carbon cages even though they are a bit pricey. I purchased this one and have not been disappointed. My bottles fit tightly in the cage and there are no more squeaks. Very satisfied with the fit of the bottle in the cage. The only reason I gave a four stat rating is because the finish lost it's lustre on the inside of the cage. Not sure why looks fine on the out side. Tried cleaning it, but no change. I would purchase another one without hestation
Great light weight and good looking cage. These come with a lifetime warranty that Blackburn actually stands behind. I managed to break one recently and got a free replacement with a quick phone call to an actual courteous English speaking person who was familiar with the product. No hassles or mindless questions.
Used to hold water bottles on road bike. Very easy to get bottle in and out. I broke 2 other brands because it was so difficult to get bottle in and out. These are amazing and will continue to use Blackburn holders.
This cage ticks all the boxes for quality, appearance, design, and functionality. It is very secure and I sometimes find it actually a little hard to pull the bigger water bottles out of it. Smaller bottles work very well though. I installed two and use two small water bottles for longer rides. I have the gloss black which matches my frame very well. The holes are perfectly spaced. Huh you ask? I have had cages that did not precisely match up with my frame's cage mounting bolts! Overall, great cage.
Very nice light weight water cage. It fits all of my water bottles (camelbak, polar & cheap swag) very snug, no rattle or ejection when riding over bumps at high speed. I have it on my P2 TT bike. The red is a very deep classy color & looks sharp & shiny against the black frame. I would recommend this item.
