Can someone please recommend a decent water bottle and cage that will stand up to jumps, drop offs etc. I am fed up reaching for my bottle to find it has ejected!

    Thanks Paul - very constructive. I have a camelbak, I want a bottle for quick thrashes around my local trail without wearing a backpack plus the option of taking an isotonic drink on longer rides.

    I find you can't beat the Bontrager standard 6mm alloy cage and a SIS bottle... Or for something a bit more flash a RXL cage and Camelbak Podium bottle.
    Rule 64:

    Cornering confidence generally increases with time and experience. This pattern continues until it falls sharply and suddenly.

    Try the Tacx Tao Ultralight cage.

    I ve got one of the cheaper elite plastic ones that I use with a standard SIS bottle, Not come out yet but I ve not tried it on anything properly gnarly, just XC courses....
