me thinks that some of you guys worry too much about aesthetic.
i will openly admit that I think a bike without water bottle cages looks cleaner, but thats not my primary reason for going without them.
my last bike had a water bottle cage and anytime I left anything in it, it would get stolen. empty vitamin/spring water bottles stolen every day which would grumpify me because then I'd have to go out and spend another
dollar on another
disposable bottle that someone would steal just to see how far they could throw it every time I went into a place for a moment.
got to the point where I'd end up taking the bottle out and putting it in my bag with me to prevent theft. then, of course, I'd forget to put it back in the cage and if I needed a drink I'd still have to do exactly what I do now.
except now my bike looks better too.
p.s. warm water hydrates you better anyway.
