Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Water bottle options in lieu of drilled mounts

Do you guys have any recommendations for water bottle setups for long rides in lieu of drilled mounts? Does anyone use the kind that mount to the underside of the saddle?

How about this item?

Thanks.

camelback all the way. They work really well, and they wont leak if you decide to carry it around in a bag.

$2 at home depot, work fine. Put tape under them so they don't scratch the paint.

On the right bike the handlebar mount could look classy. Think: Stainless steel bottles and various Rivendell paraphernalia.

the seat post ones that tri-athletes use work pretty well.

They function well but are ridiculously ugly!

thanks guys -- i ordered a clamp-one like i had first linked to, a pretty basic cage, plus that camelback podium that was suggested. i'm not a fan of the handlebar mount, and i think i'm in agreement that the seatpost ones seem a bit bulky. i'm realizing that for longer rides, keeping water in a messenger bag is not so ideal.
