Our version of a side loading cage uses the same manufacturing processes as our other cages. The quality is certainly up to our high standard. Instead of building this cage to be all things to all people we concluded a specific, one piece shape works best. We could have made it a 'flip-flop' or a 'reversible' design with two or three pieces, so one could mount it right or left, down tube or seat tube. But, we didn't think instructions should be required reading to use a water bottle cage.
