It sure is pretty but I don't think I'd spend 90 bucks for a cage. FYI, it's the new Elite carbon cage
YIKES!! (nm)jtferraro

I've been eying a Land Shark lately as well. That'll be seriously tough after buying two new framesets within the past year.... Hmmmm... Maybe I'll give the Lotto a go.
Here's what I'm going to use:look271

"But dear, the warranty is up on my 271! I have to get a bike with a warranty!" Think it'll work?

With the money I read peopleon this forum spending on bikes, wheels and clothing, I wouldn't be surprised if at least 25 people bought them. And then we have to listen to now much lighter there bike is and how much stronger they feel.
LOL!!! I think you're right.No_sprint

contained in exercise drinks. A two year study showed a 3.4% increase in fluid replacement and 4.5% decrease in body temperature in atheltes using the new carbon fiber bottle cage. The most dramatic results appear to be when mounted on harsh aluminium frames. I'm running to the store to buy them right now. My LBS is bundling these with the new Colnagos C-40 with "High Power" chainstays.
Sold! I just bought 6. :-) nmDave Hickey

I'll have to stick with my conventional, non-shock absorbing cages. I like to put yogurt and strawberries, maybe some sliced peaches into my water bottle at the start of a ride. That way I can have a refreshing smoothie part way through the ride. Much more civilized than Power Gel. You have to ride something like a Klein for it to work though. That's the only reason why I don't have a C-40.
It costs $189.99 if you could find one with Ferrari logo ; ) nmWingWing
