Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

They're more than $19.00. Their Elite cages and they are OREC approved.

Now, the harsh news: no way that bike could ever be hot in its present state. It has suicide levers, a kick-stand, and the cables are routed in front of the bars.
A KICKSTAND?

Cmon man.

It may be an awesome bike, with with that photo it is going to get a NOT. Please post a better picture so I can change my vote.

Afraid I'm all out of natural light for the day, and so that photo will have to do. If it's not enough to respond to the MTB with drops, I'll just have to accept defeat.

Dark or not, though, I'm about to take off for a ride full of HTFU, so whatevs.

The EVO 4G has a flash, doesn't it? Remove the helmet, shoot directly from side, not cock-eyed, at top tube level or so, and use the flash, Luke.

junk might be a stretch. they are probably one of the most popular cages in the pro peloton.

I've been using them for a couple seasons, they seem to work pretty well for me. I have lost one bottle and that was on a really crappy descent so I can't complain too much.
