Anyone use the new Zipp water bottle hoder/cage?hammer_cycle

After breaking yet another bottle cage at the base, I'm thinking about trying out the new Zipp bottle cage. Has anyone heard anything about these? I need something to hold regular bottles. I've heard mixed things from people and from what I"ve read on the internet (not much info). Some people say they hold the bottles better than anything else, whereas someone mentinoed that they wouldn't make it out of their driveway without dropping the bottle. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I've had 3 sets of them on 3 bikes for about 2 years; no complaints; never lost a bottle, and that's on some pretty rough roads.

The one caution is not to put your bottle in, then force the spout closed. This tends to straighten the little tab under the bottle that keeps it from falling through.

I've used them on 2 different bikes for the past year. I've never had a problem or lost a bottle. You can find the same cage $19.99 at Supergo under the Weyless name.
have you seen the 2004 Campy Record carbon cage?tarwheel

I'm not a huge carbon buff, but the Record carbon cage looks nice. Problem is, Campy will probably put a ridiculous price tag on it. Any guesses? I'm predicting $50 each. They're also coming out with a Chorus version with carbon attached to a wire frame. More details at www.campyonly.com
Try $123 each! nmSTI
