The number 1 bottle cage in the pro peloton, a true design classic which is also self-adjusting. These cages were used by over half the starting riders in the Tour De France, including Mark Cavendish, Thor Hushovd, Bradley Wiggins and Cadel Evans.

"Previous experience of this product had me buying this cage this time around for it's colours to coordinate those of a new (expensive) MTB. My priorities for a drink cage is one of speed of getting the bottle out, drinking, and putting it back in, to keep my 'distraction' time to an absolute minimum. These cages are excellent in this regard."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight

"As the blurb intimates "short ride garment" - very basic padding means rides >40km. I added this to my wardrobe for quick training rides where knicks four times the cost were not needed. Fit and comfort are good."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, Good Fit

"Good wearing, reasonable price, acceptable weight, excellent puncture resistance (I keep pressure at 115 psi and am 62 kg). Price means if the tyre gets a few cuts before it's use by date, just replace it for piece of mind. Red and black coordinates with colour of frame."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Lightweight, Versatile

"This is a very good basic road tyre that ticks most of the boxes - excellent puncture resistance, long wearing (5000km+), predictable handling, able to go to 145psi and ability to colour-coordinate. The main downside for those who consider weight is the 330g of this wire bead example. That's about 80-100g more than the folding type, but at the price the cycling adage rings true - the more you pay the less (weight) you get !!"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive
Cons: bit heavy
