    Koala Bottles added to my new ride

    Just a quick little thumbs up for a new water bottle system that I have been using for the last couple weeks on my new 520 touring bike. These babies have a magnetic ring that holds them in place while you ride. Now, I haven't taken 'em on a trail yet because we still have 2' of snow on the ground-BUT we have tons of potholes and uneven railroad tracks that I've gone over, and I must inform that I am impressed! Not once did either of my bottles pop out of its cage. It was so nice to not have to look down while I was riding to put the bottle back in the cage-just get it close and "click" it's in! To be fair and upfront and to leave no loose ends- I do not work for this company, nor were they comped to me for a great review. I am just a regular joe that appreciate cool stuff.....and this is. Check them out at KOALA BOTTLE | The Magnetic Bottle Then try 'em out for yourself.

    Coolness is subjective. There was another magnetic bottle around, and may still be: Vincero Design Edge 16 mount & Stratus bottle review - BikeRadar

    IMO, a solution to a non-existent problem. Try Arundel sport cages or Elite custom race cages for excellent bottle retention and easy use. Very light, inexpensive, and they take just about any bike bottle.
    Ride more. Fret less.
