    Light Bicycle Water Bottle Cages??? Tried Any???

    Are LB water bottle cages good? At $11 for a carbon cage, they are a great value. If you have any experience with them please let me know. I imagine they could throw a couple of them in the box with a wheelset so shipping would be free.

    And this relates to "wheels and tires" via your shipping reference? Hmmmmm.

    Since this forum gets a lot of traffic regarding Light Bicycle because of the Cheap Chinese Rim thread, I thought a lot of LB customers would see it and reply but obviously not.

    LB sells five different water bottle cages and I was hoping for a little help on which ones are best. I ended up ordering two different ones with a set of wheels so the cages are shipping free. That makes them an even greater bargain if they work well. I will report after I get them in about three weeks and try them.

    Here is my answer to my question. It is in a form that will be useful to anyone unfamiliar with LB. I also posted in the General forum.

    Light Bicycle (LB) makes cheap frames, rims, wheels, water bottle cages and other things in China. I bought some wheels from them and decided to try a couple of their cf water bottle cages too because they are light, cheap, look good and shipping would be free for me because they could throw a couple of them in the box with my wheels.

    Today I got the wheels and the cages. The cages are very light and stiff enough and look great. I don't know what it would cost to ship a cage to the USA but if you are buying something else from LB I recommend their water bottle cages too. Be aware that I'm not a water bottle cage expert but I know that at my LBS cf cages cost six times what I paid for one from LB.

    I got to ride a set of wheels this past weekend. Flat amazing for the money. Stupid light and I cant get over how laterally stiff the felt for being so light. I see a set in my future. Thanks for the info.

    They really should. I got one from eBay for nearly free. All I paid was the outrageous "shipping," from China. This means it cost them less then $1 USD/ea to produce them.
