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)

Coffee cup holder

Has anyone any experience with these? I frequently take bike rides just to coffee shops and pick up a nice one. And what one might be the best model?






Coffee makes me happy!

They all do what theyre supposed to do - which is hold a coffee cup. I highly doubt that one is better an any of the others.

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience riding with one.

i like the LOOK of the soma one, but i would guess the ones lined with the rubbery stuff be better.

I enjoy coffee quite a bit too, but don't think I'd ever want to strap a hot cup of it to the front of my bike. I can't imagine hitting any sort of bump with a full cup of hot joe mounted to your bars would yield any sort of favorable results.

The Orgin 8 with a stainless mug with a flip top close of the hole works for me. Don't try putting the Starbucks cardboard cup in there, believe me....

The frame I wound up with in the Vilano doesn't even have the water bottle mounts. That's fine by me though, I figure on getting a really ice cold beverage, or in this case a hot cup of coffee at a convenience or coffee store. Next thing you know, they'll have a tray to attach to the handlebars so you can ride thru a McDonalds drive thru and then eat your value meal curbside or while riding ? Anyway, these are probably better for cruiser style bikes ?

The 09 Langster Seattle came with a coffee cup holder. But I think you need to look more into a durable, leak proof coffee mug than a holder.

More importantly, which will hold my Route 44 drink from Sonic for the last half-mile of my commute?

I'd buy the one from Portland Design Works (PDW) if I were you. They need the money more than Soma, Origin8 or any of the others.

I think this is the answer I'm looking for, a holder AND a nice mug.

I wish that were possible. Not the tray idea, i mean ride thru McD. I tried that once at a white castle near me and they basically said "only if u are in a car". But it was midnight and nobody was at the drive thru so why can't i get some burgers!!

the mcdonalds on atlantic will let you walk through the drive through after the other part is closed, i'm sure they'd let you ride a bike through

It's easier for a criminal to rob the drive thru employee if they walk up to the drive thru window. It's for the safety of the employees.
