    Bottle cage recommendations

    Can anybody recommend a good water bottle cage for a road bike? The one's I've been using (Aluminum?) are okay, except they grunge up my bottles.

    I'm actually looking for something that I can suggest if someone asks for Christmas hints, so a $300 titanium cage would be out of the question, and I really don't like the looks of the plastic ones.

    Thanks in advance,

    Bottles

    Elite makes a cage with plastic pads. They have alloy about $10. or stainless about $20. Should do what you want.

    Zipp makes a sweet looking Carbon cage for about $40.00, Stainless steel cages won't muck up your bottles as much for about $20.00 but I just use Cuzzi cages about $12.00, heck water bottles are cheap and I usually get free ones at bike races and promos.

    Bottle cages

    Nitto makes an elegant hand-brazed stainless steel cage. Pricey at $30.
    ALE cage is chromed steel for $9.

    Neither should leave black marks on your bottles.
