Look out for another addition to Specialized?s superb accessory range with the sleek S-Works carbon cage.
As expected with carbon cages the weight is minimal, with the S-Works weighing a minimal 23g thanks to the use of Specialized?s FACT carbon.
One thing many manufacturers of lightweight cages overlook is the problem fitting a seat tube mounted cage over the bands of a front derailleur secured by a clamp to the seat tube.
This can require the addition of washers to raise the cage or some careful work with a file on the cage itself. Not ideal when you are paying a fortune for something so simple.
Thankfully Specialized has anticipated this problem in its design, keeping installation and the final look clean. Delivery for the UK is expected to be January 2008 with the price tbc.
