superior hydration from the keg-o-back!

You read it correctly! Always cold, always good to go! Especially great on a century or those painfully warm days! Here's our prototype for the keg-o-back. Our R&D boys are working on a CF/titanium model for the OCP factor and to keep the weight down to a mere 40 pounds after the unit is filled with your favorite flavor of beer!

Actually saw a rider on the London to Brighton this year with a Firkin of beer on a pannier on his bike. A Firkin is a small barrell by the way. Made it easier to carry than on the back.

Dictionary definition

fir·kin (fūrkn)
n.
1. A small wooden barrel or covered vessel.
2. Any of several British units of capacity, usually equal to about 1/4 of a barrel or 9 gallons (34 liters).

Fill it with Lite beer and save some weight.
