    Which bottle cage has most fore/aft adjustability?

    Looking for something I can move around without an adapter. It can be made of any material, I'm not picky about that. Any advice is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    My first choice. I have a standard stainless King cage on my SS and will be getting one of these for my Canfield.

    That Wolf Tooth looks promising, thanks! This is going on my new Revel Rascal. First ride was today, and man that CBF suspension is nice.

    Dang! why not that baseplate with the iris cage?? Better bottle retention ftw.

    Anything with a long baseplate like this works with the help of a Dremel tool as well.

    Ya, but the long baseplate isn't super common. Those king iris cages are THE BEST when it comes to bottle retention. THE BEST.

    Yeah, just another option vs. that wolf tooth one. I thought about those but couldn't stomach $30 for some drilled aluminum

    but what if they were steel? Bend them if you wanna, no alu oxide on your bottles...

    (they're stainless steel)


    I was just pointing them out because they're another model that King Cage makes, and it's better than the one wolftooth chose because they're more secure.

    Dude, I'm not saying your option was bad. All I did was give another one. Why are you set in arguing about this?

    Were we arguing? It wasn't my intent.

    Have you tried them all? I haven't use the King cages but I have some carbon ones on my road bike that weigh less than nothing and hold bottles like vise grips. If I had a bunch of money to throw away I'd try them on my mtb.

    If you're tight on space I found the Specialized Zee cage with holes drilled higher works well.

    No, i haven't tried them all. Once i'd found THE BEST, why keep trying the alternatives?

    Maybe they are the best but you can't say that for sure. I've heard good things though and I'm sure they're really good.

    I'm not sure exactly what they are, they came with my bike. Some Bontrager carbon model that grips bottles like they're glued on. Aside from cost it seems like a good application for carbon because it never loses its shape or tension.
