No further ejections happened after adjusted properly. Good thing Nalgenes are tough...
Haha, this is a great photo! Tells quite a story, even moreso than your typical gravel-road-in-beautiful-rolling-hills photo.

Yeah, it's hard to gauge just how jarring a particular gravel road is in a still image, or to judge the speed. You can see how far I've already passed this bottle that is on its second or third bounce. Fortunately, no pinch flats!

Thanks to @northbend for his Cino 2018 photos.

This looks like a TA copy, a take-off from the Guerciotti SL that I'm working on. Marked "Cobra Italy". This was attached to the bike with velcro and a pipe clamp. Not sure if that was the correct method of attachment then or now. I have some other attachments that I think will work clamping the wire bits, when I get another candidate for this.

The mounting tabs have been broken off this cage. It should mount just like the TA.

True! hadn't noticed under the grime. Bin it is then, unless someone wants a project.

The Zefal cage with a bit of blacksmithing works reasonably well- I bent the top 15mm or so up( in) to catch the bottle better.

In the 70ís The welded cages came in chrome, black anno with gold plastic or silver anno Wit black plastic.

the Cobra cages were crimped- got loose

the crimped TA cages were after my bike shop time.

I like the King cages, the Silca cages, the Cuissi inox cage- not the colored aluminum ( too thick) the cuissi cages are not the easiest to figure out a clamp mount.

TA steel are scarce- too bad - they were like $3.00 in the early 70ís!

even more scarce are the TA handlebar mount cages

You're talking about the Zefal steel cage? I've read some so so reviews of it but I may try it. The VO retro cage also works well and is around the same price.

I have been able to get into the co-op and look at the cages there. I didn't see any T.A. branded, but plenty of copies. Surprisingly, most were silver with white, so, let me know if you want me to grab one. I'll be looking for black drop bars in 25.4 at some point.
