These cages are based on an old French design from the '40s or early '50s. In our estimation, they are the best looking bottle cages of all time.

The Retro is a regular one-handed cage; you insert the bottle just like in any other cage, but it holds the bottle very securely due to the spring-like shape. You can spread the cage for an oversized bottle, or squeeze the cage inward for a better fit with (for instance) a metal water bottle.

Retro cages are made by hand from a single length of 3mm stainless steel rod and then electro-polished. If you examine it closely from all angles you'll see that it is, indeed, hand made.

There are two versions of our cage. This is "Type II," with a tab on the back to hold smaller and regular plastic bottles securely. "Type I" has no tab, which is the traditional design and is the better option if you're using taller metal water bottles such as the 27oz Klean Kanteen.

Great looking cage. Looks fantastic on my vintage builds.

Simple Elegance

These are simple and elegant and lightweight. As an older cyclist I am guaranteed to not miss the cage :) now if you would get those neat clamps back in stock I could put the other one on. Thank you

Perfectly vintage

It looks perfect and is totally functional with aluminum bottles.

Beautiful Cage!

This cage is on a 1971 Carlton restoration. It is beautifully made and meticulously polished and very period appropriate. The cage grips a full bottle with complete security. Excellence in both design and execution!

Water bottle cage works perfectly

I ordered the Retro Cage with tab and the 18oz water bottle. Unfortunately at the time of this review, the 18oz Kleen Kanteen people changed their bottle shape and the ones I received did not fit as pictured…things like this happen sometimes. Mine were taller and skinnier (as shown in the photo). However, I brought this issue to the attention of customer service and they immediately made the issue right. So this review really now is for two aspects. The Customer Service at Velo Orange and the cup holder itself. The cup holder itself is great. Lightweight, clean, and stylish. And the customer service was timely and eager to make things right. All in all very pleased!
