New bottle cages

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

New bottle cages

Since I got my S3 frame I was looking for a bottle cage that fits this frame in style. Yep, I am that crazy Anyways, came across those today and have decided to give them a try.

They hold bottle very well, but I need to take a ride outside to see HOW well they hold.
But they do look good IMO.

Very nice, don't know how well they'll hold a bottle though. Bike looks beautiful, might be getting an S2 next month or February, can't wait.

Similar, but Giant are more elegant. And I think lighter - 15 grams.

It is pleasing to hear that your bottle cages cage bottles well.

Nice choice, and ummmm no, you're not the only person on these boards obsessed with finding just the right stylings for a b-sickle. The OCP bunch comes to mind right off the bat!!

It's great your search ended in satisfaction!!!

How much did those set you back?

I recently got two traditional stainless cages (King) for my Lynskey Ti bike. Not putting carbon cages on it ... abomination!!! Not to mention probably much more expensive. My cages were $13.00 each. And they hold a bottle just as well.

I think that top one is the same one I have with a ProBikeKit design. They were super cheap but they taste terrible and the top will pop open randomly.
I am sure there is a CamelBak Podium bottle to match those nice cages
Edit: they are the same.

Just to update on bottle hold ability. Took quick 20 Km ride outside today and these cages hold bottles like nothing else I've had before. I mean - very firmly
