Running these for 2 seasons now, just starting a third. Light, durable, inexpensive and Iove the looks! As light as carbon, for a fraction of the cost. If I have one complaint, it is how tight the cages are when using larger diameter bottles like Camelback (my favorite!). I too was concerned about the durability but the plastic is more 'flexible' than it is 'flimsy' and the bottles have held up well - so take other reviews with a grain of salt. I use them on my road bike and mtb bikes so lots of sun, cold and abuse but so far, so good. Excellent product!

I don't regret getting these, but they're not quite what I expected. A cursory glance suggested that they were similar to a specialized cage that I have, but the mounting on these is weaker. Thin plastic around the bolt holes and no spine makes for cages that flop a bit. They hold on to bottles awfully tightly, though. I ride part road, part singletrack on my commute and they haven't broken yet, but I'm fairly certain they will at some point. They hold on like a vise, I'm sure when they do fail, they'll stay on the bottle and the mounts will break.

        Bought it because of the price. Didn't realize it was cheap plastic. Will be surprised if it lasts the month.

            I bought white which looked great on my black and white road bike, lightweight and seem to hold up well. The only con is I cannot use Camelback Podium bottles, fit is too tight.

                It actually weighs 23 grams like it's supposed to. It costs almost nothing and so far I've never dropped a bottle. It's not as nice as a ti. King Cage or carbon Mandible but it's the best cage if you want something lightweight without spending a fortune.

                  Comments about Blackburn Slick Racing Water Bottle Cage:

                  I bought a set of these for my road bike and they would be great except for the fact that getting my bottles out is a total pain! I use the Camelbak Podium bottles and they are just slightly to large for these cages. I am worried about breaking one of them while grabing my bottle.

                      I've had two of these on my hardtail for about a year and they haven't broken or let a bottle get away. At first feel they seem kind of flimsy, but they've proven to be durable. I liked them so much that I just bought another for my new FS bike.

                        Seems to be strong enough for what it is. Light weight, easy in and out if the bottle isn't oversized.
