I bought a Camelbak about three months ago. I have used it exactly once, and it was filled with ice cubes and water (never filled it with any sugared drink). I have had cramping problems in my hamstrings in my last three rides, and I have narrowed the cause to insufficient hydration on my typical sixty mile rides. I decided to use my camelbak this morning, and I am lucky that something just made me decide to inspect the bladder and the drink tube/hose closely.
To my horror, I found mold growing in the drink tube/hose. The hose can not be detached from the bladder, so I can't detach and clean the hose by itself. I need some help as to how and with what, I can clean the hose and the bladder to make them as good as new.
I do not want any trace of fungus/mold left.
Or should I just toss the whole bladder/hose contraption, and buy a new one?
Thanks for your help.
