Salsa Anything Cage


Salsa Anything Cage

Sometimes it is the simple things that bring the greatest joy, and that's why Salsa's newAnything Cage is going down as my personal pick for 2011 Touring Product of the Year.

For most of us, this oversized cage will be mounted to the standard water bottle eyelets, but it can also be mounted up to Salsa's Enabler and generation 2 Fargo forks.  The purpose of the Anything Cage is to provide some extra gear or hydration storage with a very small time and monetary investment.  I've seen it used to carry a sleeping bag, stuff sack of clothing, and a sleeping pad.  On my most recent trip, I used it to maintain a steady supply of grape flavored Fanta (see photo above).

The cage installs as easily as a standard water bottle cage, and your gear is secured with a pair of included nylon straps.  At $25, you pretty much can't afford not to get one.
