    Surley Ops Fork Waterbottle cages

    Just picked up my Surley Ops today.

    I'm trying to find good water bottle cages to put on each side of the fork. I want something that will hold a bottle if I hit a few bumps, suggestions from you guys that put cages on your fork?

    $0.15 of thin bungee cord keeps your bottles on board even on highspeed chunky downhills with no hassle pulling the bottle from the cage.

    Consider the Salsa Anything Cage. Can be used with a large variety of water bottle sizes as well as dry sacks.

    The first generation of Anything Cages broke quite easily. Salsa redesigned them to make them stronger, but I've started to hear that the new versions are breaking as well.

    I think the issue is two fold:

    - people are putting heavy stuff like water in them and that's stressing the cages
    - they are located on the side of the bike where they get leaned up against things, dropped on the ground and crashed on - so they are pretty vulnerable

    If you are going to run them I'd keep the weight down my packing them with light/bulky stuff and treat your bike gently.
    Safe riding,
