    Arundel Dave-O cages are carbon and sometimes carbon, like most materials, fails. I've seen plastic cages crack in extreme cold, steel and ti cages crack at a weld, and carbon cages crack because carbon.

    Yeah, I have broken aluminum cage(s). Specialized Rib cages have been invincible and the Performance stainless cages seem to last forever, but don't hold bottles as well as the plastic Rib cages -- so I swapped those out for Monster Cross.

    I like the aesthetics of the Arundel Mandible cages, so I picked up a set of used ones for the road bike.
