To be honest, if I was wasting money, I’d get:
and enough magnets for all of my bikes.
The biggest thing slowing you down on a road bike at speed is the air resistance, not the 36 grams of your bottle cage.Posted 4 years agoshedfullMember
I have two carbon bottle cages on my carbon bike, that I often ride the 10 miles to work. I use one very lightweight cage to carry a normal plastic bottle with 3/4 litre (and this 750g) of fluid inside. I arrive at my destination hideously dehydrated, with the bottle still full, having time-trialled a bike that weighs nearly a kilo more than it needed to.
Then I have a drink from the bottle in a place where there’s a tap nearby.Posted 4 years agobrakesMember
I’ve just had a Tacx Tao fail, the plastic looks to have fatigued around where the bolt goes through. it was pretty old though. and the other one has warped a bit, though I have no idea how.Posted 4 years ago
And whilst those Vincero magnetic bottles look great and are amazing to use, they fall off at least once a ride – a bump in the road will dislodge the bottle when it’s full. not good. I’ve just taken mine off.
