lloyd, i have two of the 6gm (4.5gm in my case) cages. they are useful to a point. unfortunately, the bottles can become stuck, particularly if sticky sports drinks, mixes, etc are involved. they do work, but you need to use either car wax or armor-all on the inside to help them stay slick. you're better off going with the 'heavier' 13 - 15gm btp cages which take regular bottles... these are excellent

In regards to those wheels. Thats kind of freaky. I would hate to be bombing down a technical descent at 40+ with those. Maybe they work, i'll wait for someone else to test them out...

Is anyone really stupid enough to spend $115 on a bottle cage? It does include a Campy water bottle, though. I guess that's worth $25 at Campy's inflated prices.

I just bought one... Mine cost "only" $79. I still wonder what the heck I was thinking. But I figure it will save me about 2 minutes over 40k! ;)LOL!

I've got the 15 gram cages. They're great. Hold bottles very well and easy to get in and out. Just be careful not to slam 'em around.
Also have an American Classic 350 wheelset from Mike at that website. It's about the same weight as the wheels you're looking at and it's great. Plenty stiff for my 155 lb body, and stays true quite well.
Give Mike a call, he's a great guy.
