Salsa anything cage/myti mug?
Ok, I’m thinking of getting a salsa anything cage to carry cooking kit on my down tube. The plan is to carry my gas canister, stove etc in the myti mug and stick it in a bottle cage thing. Not sure if the salsa anything cage is to big, normal cages look to small. Advice needed.Posted 3 years agoRestlessNativeMember
They fit just right in a Monkii cage
An alpkit 1l drybag is just the right size to fit then in too.
I’m not actually using these on my forks now as wussed out and got bouncy back. Might try one on the downtube actually though not much room on mine with partial frame bag.Posted 3 years ago
I don’t have myti mug, but I can measure my anything cage and post back this evening. FWIW, I can fit my TrailStar into the Anything cage – less metal on metal contact/rattling, etc.
EDIT: I suspect it’s too tall, but there’s nothing to stop you sticking the mug and other assorted bits into a small sack and strapping that on. I’ll post up later.Posted 3 years ago
Vorlich, is a trailstar a stove? I plan to pack a a bit of felt or other material inside the mug to prevent rattling. In fact I don’t really have a plan anymore (stove/pot/mug/type). I have given up trying to make a meths burner, so will probably use gas. My only definitive plan is to carry my cooking kit on the downtube using the bottle bosses. I don’t want to carry cooking kit in a small pack, can’t get it in a seat pack (due to reverb). And the bars will have sleeping bag/ down jacket on. So basically I need a suggestion for a mug that will carry a gas canister/stove and fit in a bottle cage type arrangement,Posted 3 years agostill s8tannormMember
The Mytimug will fit in an Anything cage but the cage is actually a bit big for it. The Monkii cage is a much better fit … if you buy the ‘V’ style cage you’ll have zero issues with it coming loose.

The lightest, most packable set up would be a bear Bones 8g stove and an Alpkit Myticup … that should give you a good basis for a sub 100g cooking set-up. The Myticup will also fit into a Monkii cage okay.Posted 3 years agojamesoSubscriber
I’d put one where Paul78 has rather than on a fork based on how rattly a mug+lid and content can be : ) Mine goes in my framebag with something jammed on top.Posted 3 years ago
And they do work very well with the bearbones meths stoves. Since using one I’ve canned my myog cokecan stove that has done well on a number of trips.RestlessNativeMember
Ok, so just had a look at the monkii cage on the web, have you attached it directly to the forks? The review I’ve just read said the cleat/ qr fasteners come undone on roughy terrain?
Those forks have bottle bosses so not using the clip thing. Fit the cleat with threadlock same as you would a bottle cagee, no problems.
As Stu says a V cage which requires a slight pull up then twist to release is the most secure one. I never lost anything attached to my forks with them, also carried fuel bottle and sleeping mat in them.Posted 3 years ago
Right. Some not entirely relevant photos. Might give you a better idea though.
The big one is my MSR Titan (100mm height, about 120 dia) and the mug is a Tibetan 450, which is the same size a ‘normal’ household mug. I know the Myti mug is taller slightly, but I’d suggest a small stuff sac or something with some other items in too, if you’re dead set on this. I’d say a Jetboil sized cylinder would fit the AC quite well, not that I’m suggesting one of those.
I know the first gen cages were apparently fragile enough to Salsa to revise the design, I reckon mine has lasted this long as it was holding the TrailStar, which is light and non rattly.

Cheers for the words of wisdom, the any thing cage is massive. Monkii type cage it is then. I don’t have much space inside the frame ( specialized pitch), so I will have a look at the bearbones mechs stoves. Any pointers on meths volume required to boil a mystic mug (approx, I know there is many variables to consider) and best places to source wind shield & plastic meths container?Posted 3 years agocompositeSubscriber
I made my own windshield cost me 50p. Silver foil serving platter. Fold one edge up to give a straight edge for it to stand on and use a rolling pin the flatten the crease. Then fold into 4.
Not just a wind shield but also reflects the heat back onto the pot.
It will slide into any of you kit bags and bend to the shape of it so it basically takes up no space. The foil is pretty robust and will take a lot of folding and unfolding. When it breaks make another one for another 50p. 🙂Posted 3 years agostill s8tannormMember

Depends on the stove but 15ml – 20ml should boil a 450ml mug.
Bear Bones stoves all come with a fuel bottle. As Composite says, a foil platter will suffice but will become brittle pretty quickly. The best stuff I’ve found is .3mm thick, it can be cut, folded and bent but it’s very robust and will pretty much last forever … I have stocks 😉Posted 3 years ago
That’s it pressed the button on a bear bones meths stove, monkii cage, terra nova tarp, myti mug, alpkit gourdon pack and a few dry bags. Just need a few bits of clothing, and I’m set. First mini trip next weekend can’t wait. Just need to decide where to go. Thank for the advice everybody. I will will report back how we got on.Posted 3 years ago
