Better Bottle Cage?

Just wondering -- are there any super-innovative bottle cage designs you guys know of?

Many years ago, Blackburn displayed a cage designed to carry a 5-gallon water jug. Innovative enough for you?

How innovative does it have to be to hold a bottle? Just wondering what you are looking for in a cage...

Maybe one that lights up a h-bar display when your bottle is low?

My cheap $5 bottle cage works just as good as my $20 flashy one. They both do the same job.

Today, everyone seems to think that carbon or designer bottle cages are "da bomb."

I have wire cages on my old Trek. They've worked for 16 years. I have these on my Orbea:



They aren't carbon and they don't break. They hold the bottle securely yet are easy to get the bottle out.
