Holds Well, Breaks Easy

I've used it several times
True to size

After about 200 miles, mine cracked where it cradles the base of the bottle. Never threw a bottle so the cage works well, but it cracks way too easily.

Sleek and Aero

The Ribcage II does exactly what it is supposed to do, hold your water bottle tightly so it won’t pop out when you hit a bump. Designed for left or right side access. Can be awkward to get a bottle in or out sometimes though. I am a big fan of its sleek aero look. Been using for several months now. Liking 'em.

Surprised at the bad reviews

I've put it through the wringer

I'm returning to buy my 8th rib cage II. It's the only secure and reliable cage I've used and surprised to see all the reviews. Use on my and my wife's gravel bikes (x2 each), my hardtail xc race (x2), my full susp x1, and her old full suspension bike x1. We've only broken 1, and it was due to a crash and underside downtube mount. I've only lost 1 water bottle in 100's if not 1000's of hours of mountain biking... Very surprised at that. Feel bad for those that broke a cage in the first few weeks, but I guess anything is possible. We've been very happy, and here I am, ordering another one for the next new bike build happening now.

Absolute trash

I've used it several times

Do not buy. As others have said it cracks easily. Bought 4 for my Roubaix. 2 in the normal spots and two on the seat using the swat mount. The two on the mount broke in the same day. Apparently you can't just ride with filled bottles. $75 down the drain (2 cages and swat mount)

Too Small bottle cage

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Runs small

MY first attempt to pull a bottle out of the cage resulted in the bottle cage cracking at three different points. The bottle I used was a standard 20 oz. water bottle that I have used with many other cages. It was snug on bottle insertion into the cage but, this is no different than many other cages that I have used. It was a defective product. I removed the other matching cage from my bike and replaced them with my old black cages.

Good cages

I've put it through the wringer

Nice secure cages, I bought two and one of them cracked within 2 weeks.
