1) - It comes WITH instructions (they are on the box), but some people might have a hard time finding/understanding them.
2) - Two screws were missing, I had to improvise, luckily I had screws that fitted.
3) - The plastic part is relatively light (49 g), but then they added a lot of metallic parts and they are heavy (111 g all together).
4) - Putting it together and in your bike is not a trivial task, but not impossible either.
On the good side, you can change the angle your bottle will be and you can add two bottle cages (but not enough screws).
After losing two bottles due to rough roads in different competitions, I decided to replace this with Shimano Pro Tri Cage Saddle Mount. I don't know what caused the bottles to be launched, it could be a bad cage, bad bottle, the angle that the cage was mounted or a combination of all of the above, but I needed to be able to carry two bottles and not losing them. I removed another star.
What I did not find acceptable, and the reason for one star, is that the pivot joint does not hold. During my testing ride, I used one bottle cage and a smaller cycling water bottle (12oz?), but the joint did not hold. I did not ride over any pot holes, metal construction slabs, sunken manhole covers (thanks philly!), or anything crazy like that. I tried tightening the nut and bolt, but no matter how tight I got the nut and bold the pivot would still give under very little pressure-- like 5lbs of preassure. I decided to go for broke and tighten the nut and bolt as hard as I could using a ratchet wrench on the bolt. No dice. After I wanted to see if any of the plastic on the joint had worn, so I went to remove the nut and bolt, but I could not...instead I stripped out the allen bolt head.
Unless you ride really slowly and only on well paved roads I suggest you look elsewhere
-I was still able to fit a saddle bag (I uploaded a pic to the amazon product page). It barley fit though so some saddles/bag combinations may not fit.
-It does its job. The swivel hasn't moved on me yet, but I'm only using one cage. If you use two Im not sure if it will hold. I was thinking of drilling in another screw to make it more sturdy but so far I haven't needed to yet. Make sure you install the small black cylinder into the swivel or else it will not hold!!!!!!!!!!!!
-I like the look.
-Horrible instructions. I didnt even see them at first but they are located on the inner lid of the box. Horrible as they dont even show the black cylinder you must add inside the swivel. If you dont add this piece the swivel will fail and you will be sorry!
-Did not include the needed screws!!!!! ARG! They give you the screws and mounting plate you need to mount this to the saddle, but they dont give you the screws needed to mount the cage to this product, and no cage includes screws! Luckily, they do give you the nuts you need so I was able to go to home depot and find the right fitting screws, but those should have been included.
In conclusion. I was able to get this product to work how I wanted it to, but it could be better.
I thought it was something a little different and alot cheaper than the Profile Design behind the saddle bottle cages that are like $50.
The Plastic not exactly as Black as I would like it so there is a contrast against the black leather of my saddle but thats not a huge deal.
Id say if there was anything negative I would say it would be that I could only affix it to one point on the saddle by the way it is designed and in that position it sits rather high.
For instance, The Bottle Cage that I mounted on it actually sticks up higher than the saddle does and is a potential Impaling device.
So I am going to have to use a Metal Bracket to drop it down.
Also, the way that the nuts are housed in the backside of the mount is kind of dumb.
They are Loose in a Package and are not tightly held in it the recess in the plastic.
So, I could see them easily falling out on and getting lost and since they are a small sized, square nut.
I am probably going to use a drop of super glue on the edge of each one to hold it in but Im not sure if it will bond to the plastic the mount is made from.
It is a little pricey for what it is in my Opinion but it is Perfect for what I was trying to Accomplish.
It seems like a well made quality product
The precision molding and machining of the Tacx mount is impressive. There is a clearly a quality difference between this Tacx mount and cheaper bicycle accessories. In fact, the machining is so tight on the main pivot that after much abuse, there is no play or visible wear. This product is a good example of where paying for quality on a seemingly insignificant product makes a great deal of sense.
