Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My LBS raised the price on tubes to $9.99 this year. So I just bought 10 tubes for $39.00 off of ebay.

I don't like plastic or squeezing bottles. I guess you think that Veloorange's bottles are also hipster?

Do you mean the Kleen Kantene? Velo-Orange doesn't make those... and they are definitely not intended for bicycle use.
Do you enjoy letting the water dribble from the squeeze-bottle type nozzle on your aluminum bike bottles?

Yes, they're metal.

The top locks, so there is no leakage. You have to twist it to lock/unlock. Then, pull it to open. I also bought a screw top for it in case I like that better. Most of my drinking is at stops anyway, i.e. traffic lights.
