    Elite Custom Race Cage and Klean Kanteen 27oz Compatibility

    So I don't like to drink out of plastic...

    Anyway I'm looking to buy the elite custom cage and the klean kanteen classic 27oz. I am wondering if anyone has tried this combo? It's success?
    Or if not someone could provide the dimensions of bottles that fit in the cage. The klean kanteen is 9" long and 2.75" diameter.

    Thanks much.

    Just yesterday I was taking a drink out of my insolated plastic water bottle..yeahhh why does my water need to taste like a plastic waterbottle..it's like 2013 can I get a water bottle that makes my water taste like water?

    SS water bottle may be the ticket here...watching to see if you get any hits with this tread!
    Thanks
    PS ~ if you get one, update your thread with status..thanks!

    The 18oz Kleen Kanteen Classic will fit a standard bike cage. For the larger bottles, you'll either need their cage, or an adjustable one (like the one made by Topeak).

    The 18oz is the same diameter as the 27oz but longer in length. It's two inches longer. Which makes this combo look good.

    Yes, but the neck also happens further up the bottle. Hence the indent on a regular bottle cage will not be in the right spot.

    Using 18oz bottle, a bit large but still clamps on.
