    Aero Bottle and Cage

    I just saw Vino's new TT Plasma (The new Plasma TT bike build) and am looking for an aero bottle and cage for my TT. Besides Arundel ($60) what other brands are there to choose from?

    Bontrager makes a new one that is made of CF and very futuristic looking. I've seen one at the LBS....very nice.

    I am pretty sure that Bontrager makes one for about the same price. It's a good question though as I was thinking about getting the Arundel for my P3C.

    OK, where can I get a deal on the Bontrager bottle?

    You'd need a new cage too, wouldn't you?

    I only discovered the bontrager bottle a few days ago after my coach told me about it. I have only been finding it in GB so far. If no one has any links as to where I can get Floyd's bottle, I will probably pick up the bontrager.

    I talked to the BMC guys at Interbike and actually fondled that bottle. They ran me off when someone slipped in the puddle of drool I had made.

    I believe the price on the bottle was around $500. I asked if you were dropping $10k on a frame, couldn't they throw the bottle in?

    That would be a negative.

    Seriously considering doing a balsa mock up and building my own this winter.

    I'm in the U.S.....Connecticut to be exact. My LBS has ordered a few of them from Bontrager already. They have one left in the shop which I was fondling and considering buying for my TT bike. So, yes...they are available already in the U.S. at least. The one at my LBS said $49.99 on it.
