Minoura Dura-Cage AB100 4.5mm White. (Road Bike version)
Where bought and price
Bought from The Freedom Machine down in Brighton, Melbourne for $14.95 AUD
How it is used
Used every time I go for a ride. It is used to hold 750ml and 550ml water bottles.
Minoura's longest and best-selling cage, finely crafted from exclusive #2017 Super Duralumin.
Available in two sizes - 4.5mm or 5.5mm
4.5mm cages (36 grams) are the perfect choice for weight-conscious road riders, while MTB riders prefer the 5.5mm cages (52 grams).
Includes two mounting screws.
The Dura-Cage is available in a multitude of colours: silver, black, yellow, white, red and blue.
Uses a 4mm Allen key for the screws.
- range of colours
- made in japan
- 2 year warranty
- easy to pull out water bottle
- comes with alloy screws
- even though 36grams is relatively lightweight, competitive cyclists would probably want a carbon fiber based cage weighing around 24grams.
The reason why I bought this bottle cage was that my previous holder had thick rubber grips on each side of the cage, making it hard to pull out while grabbing a drink at excessive speeds, almost to the point where I started to wobble trying to grab a drink.
Definitely worth the buy for only $15
So far it seems good, had it for around 1 month and there has been no troubles.
