I've been following this thread with some interest. Many on of the complaints about handlebar mount bottle cages have centered on the bottles bouncing out on rough terrain. I've never experienced that personally with any cage position (but boy did my gel bottles go flying off my handlebars during the Leadville 100 mountain bike race!) but as an Italophile I use REG cages and they have those handy spring clips to prevent your bottle bouncing out. Here's a picture of my REG handlebar mount spring clip bottle cage. They work great. I wish I could find some more of these.
