Actually one is more of a redesign. The Moderniste cage is our most popular model. And why not? This tubular stainless steel cage is elegant yet a little funky, artistic even. It's very light at 42gms, and it looks nice on both modern and vintage bikes. The one thing that was missing was a polished finish; the factory that made them for us was not equipped to polish, but we recently found a factory that could. And they even added a little cutout in the mounting area. The redesigned Moderniste cage is now in stock
Our entirely new model is the VO Course cage. It's based on the classic racing cage and also rendered in polished stainless steel. This cage will interest those who find the Retro cage too, well retro, and the Moderniste cage too daring. Some feel that this design allows the fastest bottle removal and replacement. Over the course of a 1200km brevet that could save you, perhaps, one second?
Both the new cages work well with both metal and plastic bottles. Being stainless steel, they will not discolor plastic bottles.
This completes the full line of Velo Orange water bottle cages. Or does it?
