|Monkii cage on Salsa Enabler fork.|
The Monkii cage is a standard 2 bolt fitting but the fittings are anything but standard. The cage is a quick release design … the normal Monkii requiring a pull straight up to release it and the Monkii V version needing a pull up followed by a 90 degree turn, so it’s ideal for tight spaces. With the cage removed you’re just left with 2 bobbins on your frame, fork, etc.

The cages certainly aren’t as big as Anything cages so won’t really carry the same volume but initial playing around would suggest that they’ll hold enough to make themselves useful … the packaging suggests a load of no more than 1.5l which in my book weighs 3.3lb. There’s an adaptor available too, so you could fit a cage where you’ve no mounts, ie seat post, under downtube, suspension forks, etc.
I’ll be giving them a good workout over the next few weeks but at the moment I’m feeling confident that they’ll stay in one piece and do what’s asked of them.
