Ok, thinking about a 'CamelBak' for my Bike. Trying to weigh out the Pros and Cons...
I only have a mount for one water bottle. I can carry another bottle in my rack bag, but then do not have as much room for my other junk.
They make these zip-tie type brackets so you can add water bottle mounts to other places ~ but am wondering if that is really the best way to go? If you use plain water bottles, the water gets too warm, too fast. If you get the insulated ones, you don't carry as much water (I don't need *cold* water, just not body-temp water) Plus, 2-3 bottles is bout the max I could carry.
If I got a CamelBak - I would *NOT* want it on my back! There was a thread in the 'touring' forum about a way to mount a CamelBak to the bike?? Does anyone have thoughts about this?
I know a lot of folks have been talking about CamelBaks - so was hoping to start one thread about them - good, bad - stuff we might be missing?
If you mount one so it hangs from your top-tube, can you even drink from it while riding? How much sucking do you have to do to even get water uphill from the bag to your mouth?
And so on... Help??
