Most Practical Uses for `Cage Rocket`
Being a sucker for neat little gizmos - I picked up a couple `Cage Rocket` storage devices that drop into water bottle cages.
I guess I like the fact that they`re easy to wipe clean after a rain and easy to leave at home if you don`t need the contents that particular day.
So my intentions were simply to use them for leg warmers, an extra pair of gloves and maybe add keys and a wallet on ocassion.
There`s no rack on the bike and I have no intention of slapping a 5lb rack/bag combination on the bike just to ocassionally carry a few lightweight items.
They are large enough to handle a mtb tube, a couple CO2 cartridges and tire
levers, but for that I already have a waterproof kit that sits under the seat.
So I`ve heard that some people use them for sunglasses and sunscreen. Do you own one or more and what was the most practical use you found for them?
OK So I guess everyone is right in one way or another
I do agree that the shape of a cage rocket isn't ideal for a bottle cage - so decided not to use a cage to mount them.
Agree that they'd make great bookends so bought two of them just in case things don't work out as planned.
Agree that it would be a shame to lose a bottle mount so worked around that one too.
A little ingenuity, a heat gun and some heavy gage nylon sheet material and a drill gave me this result which was road tested today in rainy conditions and will double as a splash guard. Here are some photos of the installation. Access to the water bottle is not an issue.
LHS has my warm-up leggings and the RHS has two pairs of gloves. Attachment is beneath water bottle cage and the nose of the rest is rubber mounted. No issues with vibration or movement of any kind.
