this is a really silly question.
but i'm gonna ask anyway.
when i see a puddle, river, or stream. I put the 'pedal to the metal' and attempt to drill thru it. half the time its deep, my wheel gets caught in some bundle of river rocks, and i end up gasping for air...figuratively speaking.
if i purchase a camelbak hydration pak. wont my mouthpiece get messed up/dirty with every fall on wet or dry terrain?? what do u do to prevent this.
right now, i use an oakley backpack w/ two 1 liter water bottles for my 2 hour trail rides.
