bottle cages - specific colours

Postby jasonc » Mon Oct 08, 2012 11:33 am

So I got a new weekend warrior and now I want everything to match.
I'd like to find bottle cages that are a combination of dark blue, white and grey
I think dark blue and grey would be the best bet.

I've seen baby blue and white and blue and white but not dark blue and grey.

any help appreciated

cheers

Have you thought of buying some you like and just painting them the right colour?

Check out Elite's Custom Race colours here http://www.elite-it.com/custom-race/

You can click on the dots on the left hand side to change the colours :D I think the last one might be the go.

I use these- purchased in matching colour after I brought my new bike earlier this year.

I should recommend you a really heavy, non-aero bottle cage, so you have less chance of KOM-sniping me on ya flash new roadie:D

what about

http://www.elite-it.com/custom-race-chrome/ - the second one?
it's more grey/black

but i didn't like the camouflage suggestion (hope i was looking at the right one)

I had the split white/black gamma on my SST

the splits look like the leader so far

and the elite custom race chromes are very expensive - edit - no so expensive:

Yeah they are on the tight side, something I failed to mention :oops:

However they do get slightly better with use, at least you know your bottles wont go anywhere =)

I posted one on the bike image thread, but that was before bottle cages
this is from this morning

Image

EDIT: the seat post cage is looser (easier to get the bottle in and out of) than the one on the bottom tube so I'll swap them over tomorrow.
