June 12, 2015 – The Ejection-Proof Bottle Cage
Rough roads eject bottles like a bad VHS tape. Teams use grip tape, bar tape and sand paper to give their cages some extra traction—all the teams except Trek Factory Racing. Those guys ride the Trek Bat Cage. The 48-gram composite cage wraps tightly around the bottle and features a pronounced front tab to lock your bottle down tighter than the Astana Team bus, but the bottle is still easy to remove and replace from the saddle.
