This Space for Rent


Crappy Delta bottle cage #2

Late saturday night, as I was approaching the Pacific City control (for the Oregon Coast 600k,) I ran directly into a big pothole that made a metallic snap noise come from the mlcm.

I though it was something being ejected from my rando bag but everything was present for investigation. I didn’t realize it was the stupid bottle cage (the second of two Delta cages) breaking in exactly the same way as the other did.

Imagine my surprise at the Lincoln City control when I pulled the (empty) water bottle out of the cage and saw this loose end just hanging out.


On the plus side, if something absolutely has to make a snap noise, a water bottle cage is at least both inexpensive and lacking the crash nature.
