$75 for a bottle cage? Some people have too much disposable income.

Honestly, the amount of money that some people spend on bikes, or parts, these days is stunning; $600 cranks, $900 wheelsets, $500 handlebar/stem combos, ect., it just goes on and on.

I'm not one to skimp too much when it comes to my bikes, but I do try to hit some sort of value point with my purchases. And no stupid light parts either.

Oh well, at least these big spenders help support the economy. Nothing wrong with that.

No. You can get one for under $25 at Speedcific and it is CF.
Sure! Bolt it on with a couple $10 titanium bolts!Dave_Stohler

...and, while were at it, since we're trying to save weight, let's only half-fill the bottle with water!

Sheesh!!!!

maybe if it dials your phone or cooks your dinner or little jets pop out of the side and it makes your bike fly, but to hold water? put it in perspective, it just holds the water bottle on your bike! i can eat for a month on $75.
