StarStarStarStarStar Growler Runner!

by
Ownership: a few weeks
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Hauls growlers to the brewpub strapped right and looks slick! It's perfect!

Cons

Adds weight but hauls beer!

StarStarStarStarStar You can put stuff in it

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

I've got the Anything Bag to go along with it. It makes sense to get them both. You just buckle the straps and go. I'm never worried it will fall off and it can carry stuff, like a water bottle and snacks, or my clothes for an overnight bikecamping excursion. Whaddya want? I don't really know of a product like this. It fits right nicely on the fork of my Surly Ogre.

Cons

Warning! It requires three braze-ons for attachment. You might be able to get by with two, but it's not easily mounted on any part of the bike, like the water bottle cages. You could do it, but it's a bit wide. Your best bet is a Surly Ogre/Troll or Salsa bike for which the instrument is intended.

Other Thoughts

It's not going to change your life, but it's useful when you want to haul more stuff!

StarStarStarStarStar Solid construction

by
Ownership: two months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Feels and appears to be indestructible. That being said I could always manage to tear things up.

Cons

The instructions that come with it specifically state that the cage is supposed to be used only with a 3 bolt mount and not your standard 2 bolt water bottle cage mount which was my plan.

Other Thoughts

It's a solid piece. Thankfully I can mount it to my fork. Now I need a second cage to keep it symmetrical on the bike.

StarStarStarStarStar Salsa anything cage

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Really helped balance weight front to back on my self contained tour of the Oregon Coast this summer. Held up well in a 30 mph crash when my front tire blew off the rim.

Cons

Limited shapes that it can contain but it worked out for me.

StarStarStarStarStar More capacity for "stuff"

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

The anything cage is sturdy and can add additional carrying capacity of items.

Cons

Larger than I expected but a good size for things like a small tent or sleeping bag.

Other Thoughts

I am using my bike and the Anything Cages for light touring and credit card touring so I bought them just for additional carrying capacity. My friends all went with the pannier route and I went with the seat bag, frame bag, and the anything cages. The anything cages allowed me to carry small things including rain gear I couldn't fit anywhere else.

StarStarStarStarStar Great, not just for water bottles!

Pros

Sturdy, light, can fit nalgene bottles among other things

Cons

Straps can be kind of a pain to adjust, especially while riding
