As title says, im picking up a new 150 next week.
Coming from a 5.5 im excited to be able to run a bottle, so what bottle cages are/do you recommend please for holding a bottle secure and not losing it on the 1st downhill.
Elite Prism. Best cage I've used and I previously had the Specialized Zee 2 (which was also very good, but I didn't like the branding! ). The only issue is the mounting slots are quite far down which pushes the cage (and bottle) closer to the shock. I simply drilled another hole to get the cage and bottle closer to the seat tube (I also did this with the Zee). It is more secure than the Zee, and that is saying something. I can get a 750ml Elite Fly in mine with clearance to my shock (medium SB130).
Another Zee Cage user here. I tried an Arundel Mandible but it was too hard getting the bottles in/out. Arundel also has a side loader which I suspect would do well but for the price the Zee Cage is really hard to beat.
