TACX Tao and Allure. The Tao doesn't scratch bottles and is the coolest looking cage out there. The Allure b/c a Zefal Magnum will fit into it, and it doesn't scratch bottles either. And they're both light.

Stainless steel, light, cheep, non-marring on bottles, and they match the color of my Ti bike.
Stainless - Blackburn/PerformanceNessism

The Performance and Blackburn stainless cages appear to be identical. I like the heavier 50 gram model for the added durability. Very sturdy and good looking in my opinion. Just saw them at the Torrance, CA Performance store the other day for about $5 each. Great bargin.

I'm using the Performance stainless cages on two of my bikes. They last longer than Al cages, don't mark up the bottles, and hold the bottles better.

Its the best money I spent on cycling this year. They work so well and look different. Only slightly better than the wonderful Fizik Aliante. My flite has taken a permanent place in my parts box. Its a lot of money for a saddle, and worth every penny.

They seem really good.Easy to slide the bottle in and out, plus they seem to be relatively secure. We'll see how long they hold up for.
Yep. wb will never fall out and cages don't smear bottles nmBruno S

light, very secure hold, don't mark up the bottles. even at the price I got them, not worth the money from a cost-effectiveness standpoint. but cost-effectiveness isn't everything.
