About Planet Bike
In November of 1996, Planet Bike was founded in Madison, Wisconsin. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.
Despite being a simple machine, the people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.
Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, they strive to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short ten year history, they have made important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the 4-line computer which is now a standard in the industry and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that ten years ago started as a one man operation. Today, while still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve their product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, they have made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.

The red is a brilliant and vivid red. The product pictures for this item are accurate (as far as the red goes).
I use two different water bottles, a Polar 24oz - Thermal Insulated Bottle Big Bear which this cage holds snug and secure, and a 27oz Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Water Bottle which the cage holds in place reasonably well.
More About the Klean Kanteen:
My Klean Kanteen (w/ sportscap) is my main water bottle, so it spends a lot more time in this cage than my Polar. At first I was nervous using my Kanteen in this cage because on first use, it slid into the cage very easily (too easily), and seemed very loose in the cage. It even rattles around while riding, making a distinct chattering sound. This chattering has left minor scuffs on my kanteen, which is not a big deal for me, but might be for someone else?
But now that I have filled your head with fear, let me tell you why I STILL use my Klean Kanteen with this cage: The water bottle has yet to fall out of this cage. Despite the apparent looseness and the chattering, the bottle has never slid out on a ride, or even when I pick my bicycle up to carry it over obstacles, up a flight of stairs, or into a building. Somehow it just holds it in place, and when I need to grab the bottle for a quick drink on the road, it slides out very easily and quickly.
This cage is simple and effective. It is well made and light weight, and my red cage looks nice.Read more ›
My only nit is that they didn't come with screws to attach the cage to your bike. But, for the price, they are still a very good buy.
I treat these things like tire tubes or Kleenex; use them until they have a problem, and then throw them away. I keep one spare holder around at all times in anticipation of the next failure, then swap them out and order the next replacement so I will have one ready when the inevitable failure occurs. They match the "look" of my Titanium bike frame, so I keep using them, but I would sure like it if they would turn up the heat on their welders so that these things would last a little longer.
A few things to keep in mind before ordering though:
1. It does not come with any mounting hardware. None at all. I guess Planet Bike assumes you already have the threaded mounting holes (bosses) and the two small screws to attach this cage to your bike. Most modern bikes already have these on the downtube (/) or seat post (|), but you should check your bike just in case.
2. The black version of the cage is a flat or matte black. It's not shiny at all.
3. It's pretty light in weight, but seems very sturdy for the purpose and mounts securely to the bike frame.
I'm using this cage with a Polar Insulated Water Bottle and it works perfectly.
For it's build quality and low price, I give this product 5 stars.
