Iribe
Water Bottle Cage

  • Silver-brazed by hand
  • Superlight
  • Tubular construction
  • Stainless steel

Mr. Iribe mostly builds Keirin track frames. He makes a few bottle cages on the side. Mr. Iribe crafts each cage by hand from stainless steel tubing. Stainless steel must be silver-brazed, and silver does not lend itself to fillet-brazing, so Mr. Iribe wraps tiny plates of steel over each joint to give it enough surface area for the silver-brazed joint. Then the entire cage is polished, not plated, and so you can see how it was made. It reminds of a Samurai sword: a piece of art that provides exceptional function.

The shape actually makes perfect sense once you see it with a bottle inside. The Iribe cage is superlight and holds the bottle firmly. Weight: 36g.

Made in Japan.
