I was going to get a couple of Elite stainless. Anybody else got a suggestion for 20 bucks or under?

I've been using the Tacx Tao's and really liking them. They hold the bottle very secure and removal of the bottle is also easy. www.wisecyclebuys.com is the best price, everybody charges they same, wisecyclebuys doesn't charge shipping.

Tacx Tao. I've used them for a year. Look good, functional, light and take 'standard' water bottle size. I, too, purchased them from Wisecyclebuys.com

I've had pretty good luck with the Ciussi stainless. Performance Bike sells them for $15 each, cheapest price I've seen.
Thanks all! n.m.koala

The Ciussi stainless are nice initially, but over time they start to loosen up. The steel is pretty thin and flexible. I have also seen them crack where the tubular cage is welded to the flat mounting section.

I am planning to get some Tacx Tao cages, they look like a solid design.
How about king kages in Ti or Stainless?Ambishawn

I like the Elite bottle cages too. I belive Wise Cycle Buys sell the Elite but not the King. I highly recommend Wise Cycle Buys. William is a Great guy and even took My order over the phone after 11:00pm his local time. I bought a Chorus Group set and a few other things from William. Really cool guy and the best prices I've seen free shipping and all.
