Classic Gear: Titanium King Cage

The best bottle cage money can buy
Staff Writer

Ron Andrews has worked for bike companies including Fat City Cycles, Ibis, Merlin and Yeti, but his longest running gig has been fabricating handmade water bottle cages out of his home garage in Durango, CO. Andrews has been making titanium cages since 1991, and stainless steel versions for nearly as long—all with materials sourced from U.S. suppliers. The cages won’t mar your bottles like painted cages will, plus they’re light (28 grams for Ti; 48 for steel) and guaranteed for life. Andrews is a legend in the cycling world, partly for his tough, beautiful cages, and partly for the insane speed at which he handmakes them. Check out this video of the process.
