    Strength:

    Strong, Flexiable, Holds the bottle well, dosent rattle like an aluminum, Bad is replaceable if needed

    Weakness:

    It's a waterbottle holder if it had one it would be off my bike and in the junk box!

    I Bought the carbon fiber model it's a little more expensive but it's stronger and lighter. Still this is a water bottle holder not a bike frame it better work and work well. It holds the bottle in place and dosen't rattle or break than it's doing it's job. The fact is metal bends, Plastic breaks but this dosen't do either. Still I only use a bottle in the fall nad cold spring days other than that I use my camelback, it still function much better than a bottle and holder.

    Strength:

    -Carbon fibre version looks the business.
    -It don't bed like metal ones would.
    -Does it's job and keeps the bibon in the cage even a full 750ml bibon not the like clumsy metal ones.

    Weakness:

    -Cost a tiny bit more but it works, can't complain...
    -Thick=strong=fat frame that henders installation with factory allen bolts, Solution: go to your local hardware store eg. Bunnings and look for M5 tread screws or bolts that have a longer tread length, I got M5 X 20mm Phillips head screws and because of the tread lenght I was able to attach the hand pump along with the cage.
    Small diff., Simple Solution= Kill two birds with one stone

    -Carbon fibre looks cool.
    -Works a treat.
    -Get M5 tread screws or bolts to cope with the thick frame.

    Cheap metal ones- if you wear long pants (during winter) they catch on and bend them silly, unable to hold a bottle in them not even a 1/4 full 600ml thin plastic bottle.

    Strength:

    Looks very cool
    Holds the bottle
    Light weight

    Weakness:

    Breaks easily
    Slot for battery strap in wrong place to be useful

    This cage broke after only a few months. Plastic cages are just too fragile unless you are a roadie. The mtb version of this cage has a slot for strapping a light battery for night riding, but its in the wrong place to be useful.

    I replaced my broken cage with a King Cage Stainless Steel. Its more expensive and doesn't look nearly as cool as the Rib Cage Pro, but it will last and strapping a battery on is much easier.

    I have to admit that the cage looks REALLY cool, but since it only lasted a couple of months I had to buy something else to replace it.
