About Planet Bike
In November of 1996, Planet Bike was founded in Madison, Wisconsin. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.
Despite being a simple machine, the people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.
Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, they strive to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short ten year history, they have made important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the 4-line computer which is now a standard in the industry and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that ten years ago started as a one man operation. Today, while still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve their product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, they have made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.
No screws....now I have to go buy them? Annoying and thoughtless.
I have had 3 of these fail in the field, always with the same problem: a cracked weld seam where the wire cage is attached to the mounting bracket on the "joint" side. They last about a year of bouncing around on potholed roads until the seam gives up. Whatever aluminum welder they use does not melt the rod material into the wire deeply enough, or it is of the wrong material, resulting in the cracking of the joint away from the wire holder. I usually catch this when I check and lube the bike after each ride. I have not lost any water bottles yet because I catch the problem before both sides of the bracket fail.
Water bottle cages for bikes are relatively generic when you're searching at this price point. My unit arrived without any paint chips, however it was slightly bent off alignment. This is typical for these types of products and simply require use of mild force to bend it back to true.
I was a little unsure at first because I have heard in the past that Aluminum water bottle cages tend to break easily. But I am not worried that I will have that problem with this one. This is a well built water bottle cage that holds my 24oz Polar Bottle snug and ever so perfectly. The one that I ordered was flat black and looks great on my bike.
This was the one bottle cage I could find that wasn't black. Better still, it matches almost perfectly the basket that my wife has on the front of her bike. Honestly, I don't know that this is even a review of the cage itself so much as the availability of the color that I wanted, but so far so good.
I bought two of these Planet Bike Bicycle Water Bottle Cages, one for my wife and one for myself. We both ride road bikes. The price is excellent, and they were easy to install and lined up without any issues to our standard bicycle frame screws.
Is what it is. It's old school, so IMHO it's appropriate on an old-school bike. For contemporary bikes there are MANY better options.
Not sure how you love a bottle cage??? Oh I know, try riding without one either without any water or holding the bottle, or trying to pick up the bottle from a nearby shelf or table. Once you do that a few times and either hurt yourself or fall, or drop your water bottle interrupting your workout, or spill your water all over the floor so that you slip and fall when you get off the bike. Then! Then! Then you will love this item and just buy another bottle holder to save yourself.
Works well. I chose the red one, which has a very slightly pink tint, metallic sheen. Can be bent and is sturdy. Lightweight. For those of us who don't need a carbon yada yad bottle holder, this is a very good option. BTW, I've been riding for 4 decades, so I know a thing or two about bottle cages. :)
Exelente tamaño y resistencia, la he usado con distintos tipos de botellas 500ml y 1l teniendo la nececidad de doblar el soporte un par de veces y no se ah maltratado o aflojado, lo uno que le veo inconveniente es que no incluye los tornillos,pero por menos de 10$ los consigues en cualquier ferretería
Color is a close match to a 'certain brand'. Cages are relatively light and hold bottles well.
So far so good. We will see how long they last. Bought the yellow ones.
Light, sturdy, easy to install, holds a bottle, doesn't make coffee thought :-) but I guess it's normal :-)
All metal.Good workmanship.Good looking. Only issue,I have not received any screws to mount cage on bike frame.My bike is vintage huffy without any screws provided for any mounting.
Love the cute yellow colour, really pops on my black bike. Holds all kinds of bottles with very little slippage. A total bargain!
Easy, simple, good built, cheap... What else can you ask for?
Not red, rather pink!?
I did not broke it yet but it look really cheap. Does hold a bottle though.
This is a great/cheap but functional product and an adorable colour. Easy install with brassons and holds my standard sized water bottle perfectly. Not sure it would hold a larger bottle though.
Great product. Fast shipping !
