Hi guys,

looking to put a couple of black bottle cages on my 89 Marin Bear valley build (below).

hoping for some recommendations of new or old bottle cages that would suit the build. I have seen the ringle repros though and they don't really do it for me!

thanks in advance!

Blackburn Competition would be a good choice , they have been available since the mid/late 80's and the look good on almost any bike . I have several

King Cages are timeless and work great. They come in Steel or Ti.

No relationship to Chris King, fyi.

May also consider the Specialized black if you really want black.

I favour the old Elite cages for late 80's - early 90's builds.... getting harder to get hold of ones in good condition, although I bet someone on here has some..
