I was thinking of getting some carbon fiber bottle cages. Anybody got any suggestions on which ones are good?

Weyless and Zipp are the only ones I've found, but I'd like to find some without a red logo splattered across the sides, but so far no luck. (Nothing against red - it just doesn't match my bike.) Thanks.

about same price and very slightly lighter than Zipp. for the present generation cages, the red logo is along the spine, such that it is obscured when a bottle is in. they hold the cages securely.
option B, go to www.hi-techbikes.com. they sell the 4.5g and 9g (NOT a typo) cages from Bike Tuning Parts (www.btp.de).

I just got some from Look. They have a little red on them, but what you mostly see on the bike is the "Look" in white. They look a little bit different from the link. The carbon comes up from each side, and the split is opposite the bolts holding the cage on. I put about 150 miles on them over the weekend and no lost bottles.

I think they all look ugly- like they should be on a mtn bike... I know I'm not answering your question, but I wish they could design a carbon Patao cage... or something more elegant.

Weyless cage and 600 grit wet sandpaper. I bought their seat post and wet sanded (is this a word?) the logo off. Then shot some high gloss clear coat over it. Looks great.
