Pricepoint also has these knockoffs for $9 each.

My problem with pricepoint is I tried ordering the iris through them at that $15 price a year ago only to get their regular king cage ss cage and returned them and all the ones they had in stock labeled iris were the other style. Only cost me some time not money and they may have fixed the problem by now, but it annoyed me then so I went to the source and spent the $18 rather than buying their sette knockoffs when I couldn't get the original that I wanted. Spent twice as much because I was being petty, but that's how I get sometimes.

I liked these. Saw some at REI today. Came home and read some reviews on Amazon and lots of people said they busted. So I decided to go with...

Depends on the bike. On my Soma ES, I run these.


On my Bianchi, I run these.

If you watch ebay, you can find an aluminum copy for less than $5 in auction. They are branded by Giant but the paint can be easily removed.

i stopped using ebay when amazon became king a decade ago. i don't want to wait a week to see if i can get something cheap, and then pay for shipping, and i know they have 'stores' there as well, but we have amazon prime and get free 2-day shipping on almost everything, and amazon has usually better prices 99% of the time too.
