Bottle cage for stainless steel bottles
 
Can anyone recommend a good bottle cage for my 27 oz Klean Kanteen? Apparently the one from KK itself is poor quality. I bought a metal one but it keeps scratching my bottle. Thanks.

I don't use stainless bottles, but I do use King Cage stainless bottle cages... I would recommend them for any type of bottle.

First link I saw on my search:

Just live with the Nylon ones.. Kleen Kanteen, as you note, has their own*

this 1st hand analysis over a long time of use or just reading other people's online criticisms..??



* as does Sigg ..of Switzerland Carbon cage for 0.5ltr & 0.75ltr bottles - £5.99
for their own bottles ..


plastic squeeze bottles are able to use anything
(and in races they just throw them to the roadside for the fans to bring home. )

So, scratching is an Aesthetic problem .. get over it . or cover the bottle in duct-tape ..

Arundel sport cages are very secure, reasonably lightweight, and inexpensive.

Maybe these would help Neo Totes - FreshWaterSystems.com

I've been using the King Cage Iris for a year now, really strong, well made, holds my stainless water bottle securely, and looks cool. I also like the Arundel, but haven't used one of those.

(You might try using a silver, brushed stainless bottle instead. Scratches won't really show.)

This looks perfect. It will dampen the noise from the rattling, prevent scratches, make it easier to slide the bottle out, and keep my water cold. Thanks!!!!!!

Now which color to match my bike? :(

edit: Just ordered the crimson one. :)

Plasti-dip a stock cage maybe?

I'd try the Zefal fiberglass cage.

They don't chafe or chatter on my aluminum fuel bottles for my touring stove, expect they'd be good for stainless, too.

I just let my canteens get scratched a little...it adds character!

One thing you could try is putting tape over the bottle cage, much like taping up a bike's handlebars. It would be tedious, but it could help to protect your bottles a little better.

I have an adjustable size bottle holder (Schwinn via Wal-Mart) and put my stainless steel bottles in a neoprene 'can sleeve' that get given away like free candy with promo logos on them.

I use the ( Salsa Anything Gage ) and don't really care if my bottle is scratched or not on the outside.

I use these for my 1 liter stainless steel bottles. I have one on the front tube and one on the right fork of my Fargo:

Topeak® Cycling Accessories ? Products - Modula? Java Cage

I don't know if my Anything cages would hold my bottles well, they're a bit skinny.

Couldn't you just wrap electrical tape around the bottle where it contacts the cage. It should stop any scratching if that is the main concern

I've got one of the Java cages. Works great, is size adjustable, and the rubber strap keeps rattling to a minimum.
