Awesome looking bike.

I had the same bottle cages on my Burls, and the one on the down tube (most often used) failed fairly quickly, < 1 year, the top tab with the bolt hole fractured across the hole. I'm now using Specialized Ti cages and, touch wood, they have had no issues.

I'll look in to the specialized cages, thanks for the heads up :okay: Whilst these ones look nice they don't hold the bottle very well and putting the bottle back in is a bit clunky... If they fail early too that sounds like a great reason for an upgrade :laugh:

Lifeline brand from Wiggle. £3.99. Match titanium very nicely.

I had a 75 quid voucher for Evan's so have ordered two of these:

Also ordered a few other odds and sods to make up the value, hopefully they'll look the part but will have to wait and see :laugh:
