Want to test the latest New Ultimate bottle cage?

Here at Fair Wheel Bikes we like to test most products before we add them to our catalog.  We get a lot of products to test and we cycle through them so that different people get a chance to use each one.  Once an item has been tested we usually move on to the next.  This means that we eventually end up with extra items that we are never sure what to do with.  A couple weeks ago we tried a test, we gave away a set of test Grooving Road Skewer through Facebook with the agreement that the winner would write a review.  That seems to have gone pretty smooth, but not everyone that wanted to participate had a Facebook account which made it difficult to enter.  Also it seems that we broke a few of Facebook’s rules.  So in an attempt to correct these issues, we’re going to try this next round differently. This time for recently added New Ultimate carbon water bottle cage.

Please read the following carefully before entering.

The randomly chosen reviewer will have to post a review on a popular cycling site within 30 days of receiving the item (weight weenies, roadbikereview, mountain bike review, bikeforums etc…) Reviews do not need to be positive, just honest. You will also be required to email us a link to your posted review.  Failure to do any of these will eliminate you from being chosen to review any future products.

These items we send out for review will most often be used.  Sometimes they may be new if we got multiples to test, or they may be only slightly used.  As second hand items they have no warranty or guarantees.

We ask that the reviewer after writing their review either keep and use the item and update his online review occasionally or pass it on to someone else at no charge with the requirement that they write a review somewhere.

To enter your name simply post a comment to this article.  While posting you will be asked for your email address, please use a correct address as this is how we will contact you.  (Be assured we will not sell your email address or use it to send spam.)

These cages are for use with road or mtb, so there are no restrictions on the type of suitable riding.

Additional entries can be attained by liking the FWB page on Facebook, and by sharing the Facebook post about this review contest on your Facebook page.

Finally, the drawing will take place Monday, January 28th.

    I would like to test these cages. I post on a bunch of forums with a fairly high post count/contribution and have a good ability to describe technical capacities and function.

    Also, my bike is white and black so it makes sense.

  26. January 22, 2013

    I am in on this! I even have the perfect road to test them on, it has eaten two of my bottles as they have bounced out of my current cages on the rough downhill.

    It’s lighter than my nylon cage. But does this work better? Only one way to find out….

    Not only can I post a well written and detailed review, I have excellent photography skills and a couple high-end DSLR’s. Good Photos are always a great addition to a review.

    I ride road, cross, and mtb. And, as you have it, I’m a bottle cage down and have been swapping a mandible between bikes.

  41. January 22, 2013

    I will give them a thorough testing on the paved, dirt and gravel roads here in Boulder and in the mountains.

    I volunteer.

    It would start like this, “Private Bottle Cage, all you had to do is hold my bottle and sit tight. Simple right? Any half-brained excuse for carbon fibre could do that, right? Well bottle cage, how is it that you failed to do the one thing we asked of you? You ejected the bottle. Because of your actions, Privates Thomson and Eugene are in the hospital. Private Stute is facing lengthy treatment for gravel rash and I don’t want to think of the damage done to the 7 bikes your bottle brought down. What possible excuse could you have to drop the bottle Private? Tell me that.”

    I would love to try these cages I was about to purchase the older generation new ultimate cages but haven’t gotten to it yet I would love to review these. The older version were very light which is why the interest me. I have a trek project one and a moots RSL and want to put these on both bikes. My bikes currently have the (Bontrager RXL) on the trek, and the (King Titanium) on the Moots. I will offer to buy 2 of the 4 cages and post a review of the cages on my facebook page. I would buy black cages for the Trek, and White cages for the Moots, and post several pics.

    Dear Fairwheel Bikes, As a repeat customer of numerous weight weenie products from your shop (extralite hubs, scrub rotors, Prologo C.One saddle, ax-lightness & Schwalbe handlebars, etc.), I strongly recommend and nominate Tim Travis, who is also a loyal customer of Fairwheel Bikes. If this bottle cage can get pass Tim w/o breaking, then I know this product is worthy of purchase. If you can’t mail it out to Korea, then I will be more than happy to accept it in the US on his behalf and mail it out to Tim at my expense for him to test the bottle cage. Best.

    My initial entry disappeared. Why?

  105. January 28, 2013

    Winner has been randomly picked and emailed. If we don’t hear from him in a few days, we’ll choose another.

    Keep an eye on the blog for more review items shortly.

    Thanks to everyone.

  107. Rob Gammel #

    I would love to test these, as NJ roads have a habit of ejecting bottles on me!

  108. February 24, 2013

    Being an ultra-marathon cyclist, I ride over 10,000 miles/year. I think I could give these cages a good test.
    Thank you.

    Cool idea.

    will gladly test these :)
