Strengths:    Nice simple design. Made of aluminum, so it won't break after a couple months of stressing. Good price point, won't break the bank.

Three way mounting allows for side (either) or from above entry.

Holds large bottles securely, yet allows easy entry/exit. Especially suited for holding those large Gatorade squeeze bottles from Wally World. And Code Red Big Slams

Weaknesses:    None really. Form, fit, function all working together.

Maybe not enough colors, if you are into that whole jersey / bike color matching thing.

Bottom Line:   
Had a ten year old plastic/nylon cage that held my Gatorade bottles just right. Finally gave up the ghost one bumpy ride.

Picked up a bunch of these on sale at Nashbar. Perfect fit.

Weaknesses:    don't take smaller water bottle too well, no problem if you use cycler's bottle.

Bottom Line:   
Great finish and come with many colors to choose from. fit in FS or girl's bike where space is tight, side mounted option is great and make it very easy to access.

Strengths:    Smart, three-way design allows for top or side load bottle mounting. Fits practically any frame - it's lightweight, looks killer and it holds my heavy-ass NiteRider battery like it's a newborn baby.

Weaknesses:    A design that is so simple yet superior, you'll kick yourself for not thinking of it first.

Bottom Line:   
In addition to my pack, I usually carry a bottle of energy drink in my bottle cage for all day epics. With old style cages I was constantly putting the bottle back in the cage and I even lost one once in a while. With the CatCage I have yet to even shake a bottle loose.

I wouldn't normally take the time to review an accessory as trivial as a bottle cage but this design is so much better I think everyone should know about it. From here on out, this is the only cage that will go on my bikes.
