Details

Because, at the time, it is.

Nothing feels better than a squirt of water when you reach the top of a wicked incline. The stainless steel Blackburn Chicane Cage keeps your water bottle within reach, no matter what you ride. Streets, parkways, and single-tracks all muster up a mean thirst. The Chicane will grip your water bottle like it’s your most prized possession.

Beautiful, Light, Bottle Ejector

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These cages are lightweight offering for any metal frame, they match well and are indeed very well crafted.

My main issue with them is how easily they eject bottles. I've had bottles launch out of my seat tube and sit dangerously near my rear wheel while they try to make their way to the ground (and generally they go looking for a quick stop under my rear wheel too, to ensure I need to purchase another bottle and have to ride home dehydrated).

There is no system to keep the bottles firmly in place and the metal fatigues over time. That is the reason for the 2 star review, this product in my mind doesn't quite fulfill its major responsibilities.

Steel is real!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I think Blackburn could charge more for their steel cages. They appear to be welded in a back alley in Portland by an artisan who also supplements their income by creating works of art to hold your bottle securely to your frame. These cages are not only attractive but equally light.

Perfection

    Jim Blackburn started out in 1977 in Santa Cruz CA making aluminum bike racks. And eventually his classic aluminum bottle cages.

    Compared to the Blackburn "Comp," this bottle cage is stronger (thicker gauge) and made with stainless steel (instead of aluminum). Love it.

    PROS: 1. Bottles glide in smoothly. 2. Elegant looks and function. 3. This cage is strong.

    Cons: Best for road and recreational use. Not the best for serious cyclocross or MTB action.

    A Classic: Sturdy, Durable, Non-Marring

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought a pair of these fifteen years ago for my Merckx Titanium road bike. They look as good today as when I first installed them. Lightweight, durable, and inexpensive, these cages are just about perfect. They also don't mar water bottles like aluminum cages, and the stainless steel is basically indestructible.

    The cages hold any water bottle very securely.

    They're not carbon or titanium, so there's no bling factor, but if you want a high quality cage that will last forever you won't find a better choice.
