        Comments about Blackburn MC-1 Mountain Cage:

        It works, looks nice and very inexpensive. What else do you need. I can't see spending 20-30 for a fancy one when this is just as nice. I installed on 4 bikes in the spring and no issues so far all summer.

            It was this cage for[$] or a carbon cage for 3 to 4 times the price to save a couple grams. I decided to take one ounce less water and save the cash.

            Comments about Blackburn MC-1 Mountain Cage:

            This is a pretty good value. They needed some straightening/alignment after install, but for five smackers I can't gripe. The 'knobby' top is a good idea.
            We shall see how long the paint lasts.

            The large knob at the top anchors bottles securely in place. I used these on my cross bike in a gravel road race that involved lots of gnarly patches and a couple run ups. Bottles stayed in place, no issues.

                Comments about Blackburn MC-1 Mountain Cage:

                I have been using Blackburn mountain cages since I started MTBing in 1990. Despite bending forks and handlebars and breaking hubs and seats and frames over the years I have NEVER lost a bottle or a battery pack out of a Blackburn cage - even the big water bottles.

                Same as it every was. Won't lose your bottle and won't bend during portage. A classic piece of utilitarian cycling hardware.

                  I saw comments about the weight, and that people bought it anyway. How much difference can a bottle cage make? I went for "sturdy".
