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.

I treat these things like tire tubes or Kleenex; use them until they have a problem, and then throw them away. I keep one spare holder around at all times in anticipation of the next failure, then swap them out and order the next replacement so I will have one ready when the inevitable failure occurs. They match the "look" of my Titanium bike frame, so I keep using them, but I would sure like it if they would turn up the heat on their welders so that these things would last a little longer.

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.

This kind of nominal stress will (which is the equivalent to un/loading a bottle in conjunction with road vibration), over time, separates the cheap welds, a common problem across the board for these things, which warrants replacement. So far this thing has held up, but I wish I didn't have to stress the cage to center it, possibly weakening the weld joints even prior to a ride.

This just just how it goes with these things, so it's no deal breaker for me. I like it.

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.

It doesn't come with screws but luckily my bikes frame already had provided screws for the location of the water bottle cage. I have taken my water bottle out of this cage well over 100 times already and it still looks and stays as snug as the day that I bought it.

Highly recommended that you pick this up if you are shopping for a water bottle holder!

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.

My wife wishes it was easier to put the water bottle back into the cage, but I haven't had any issues with mine.

Other reviewers have mentioned that this cage doesn't include any mounting hardware, but that is to be expected, as different bikes may use different hardware or screw threads.

Good price, easy to instal, good tension that holds water bottle well, and the user can adjust the tension slightly by bending the water bottle holder if they need to for slightly more thin diameter water bottles. Plus, they have lots of color options!

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.

However, for what it is, it is well constructed and handsome.

One star off for the nasty habit of placing logos every-damned-where on bicycle stuff. There is a "Planet Bike" imprint on the most visible part of the cage. If I were putting this on a treasured vintage bike I would feel like that cheapens the build, but as it is I have this on a beloved-but-cheap low end Trek from the late 1980's. I got the bike for $90 on Craigslist and I think this cage is about as low end as I would go on that bike. If I could find one with absolutely no logo for 2x the price I would go for that.

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?

Good quality.

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.
