Strengths:    Looks awesome, light, holds tight

Weaknesses:    pain to adjust, shears bottle decals

Bottom Line:   
These bottle cages look cool as hell on a 90's restoration project, but be warned when buying these for regular use. They require the loosening of the mount screws to adjust the size for different bottles, and if not adjusted perfectly, your bottle will either flop around like a fish, or not fit at all. Let me also mention that the design of the cage makes fitting an allen wrench in there to loosen or tighten the screws much more difficult than it should be. My final issue with these cages are the sharp edges which scrapes the decals off any bottle inserted into it. This is only a problem if you have a nice old Fat City bottle(like me) that you really would like to keep intact, but learned the hard way after a long ride with Ringle H2O cages.

Strengths:    Light, holds well, used to come in many colors-only a few now.

Weaknesses:    Must adjust for bottle size

Bottom Line:   
If you want a cage that will hold through anything and not weigh much... this is it! The only downside is it is not flexible, therefore you have to set the cage up for your bottle size by adjusting the mounting bolts. I don't use these to hold waterbottles, because I use a hydration pack. I use them to hold my Niterider battery. I can beat the crap out of my bike and the battery stays put. It has fallen out of weaker cages, but never a Ringle.
They used to make this cage in every color - green, red, black, silver, purple, blue, turquiose, gold. Now they're down to 2. Since Sun took over, they've gone downhill. Less colors, and generally poor quality in every product they make. Sad to see that happen.

Strengths:    Lightweight. Looks good, not "wirery" like other holders. Adjustable bottle grip.

Weaknesses:    Cylindrical cage makes insertion of bottle difficult on small frames. Needed to mount using only bottom screw.

Bottom Line:   
Pricey, looks good. Sometimes difficult to insert a bottle,
but once it's there you'll never lose it!

Bottom Line:   
Works great, lasts long time, weighs very little.

What more is there?! These are great bottle cages for the money because they last and last, adjust to fit whatever bottle you use, grip very well and weigh less than your power bar!

Strengths:    Quite plainly, they're the only cage worth a s**t! ALL other cages I've used throw the bottle-Only the Ringle holds the bottle. Looks cool, lasts forever, light.

Weaknesses:    None-really, no weaknesses what-so-ever.

Bottom Line:   
Only the nicest cages you can buy! And the price is worth it. If you really ride your bike, not just pose, you need a Ringle cage.

Grip, looks


Bottom Line:   
The Ringlé bottle cage has only one drawback : it's ridiculously expensive. However, it holds bottles better than any other cage. Even the harshest downhills won't get your bottle out of this thing's grip. :)
Buy one if you don't mind spending the money.
