The King Cage stainless steel cage could be the best value amongst the sea of cage selection on the market today. High quality materials and construction and everlasting durablity are some of the highlights. A perfect choice for any occasion - headlamp batteries, under downtube location, and the tri-athlete behind-the-seat location. An Excel Staff fave!
The cage itself is a great product. Durable, reasonably priced, etc. Customer service from Andrews who makes the cage is another story. I had a cage break and I contacted Andrews about it. Ron said send it in and I'll repair it. That was over 3 months ago. I have called him at least 5 times and he keeps saying: oh yeah, I'll get it to you soon. Today he said: I fixed it I just have to get to the post office to mail it, I'll try to do that today. Good product but costomer service at the manufacturer is some of the worst I've ever experienced and I'm 46 years old. If you have one of these break throw it away and buy something else. My wife had a bottle cage break from another company, I called the company (Blackburn) and they sent me a new cage within a week. I didn't even have to return the old one. I won't buy another King cage.
Pros: durable, reasonable cost
Cons: horrible customer service
These are great cages. Hold the bottle securely, made of steel so no marks on the bottle. Also very basic and good looking.
An excellent bottle cage. Near seamless weld. Unlike the Blackburn Chicane, it securely holds Camelbak Podium bottles.
I have two of these on my Serotta Legend Ti. Theyve lasted 5 years and them one of them broke at the weld. The weld should be a quarter of an inch higher on the cage so that the weld is supported by the lower cage bracket.
