    Where to find Bontrager Speed Aero Bottle????!!!!

    Hey guys,

    I recently snatched a Bontrager Speed Bottle cage without the bottle. I am obviously now wondering where to purchase the water bottle that goes with it.

    I am hesitant to order from Bontrager themselves because shipping is $6 (that's 50% of the bottle itself!)!

    So... Anyone know of a place that carries the Speed bottle and won't kill me on shipping?

    Thanks

    I did a quick search and didn't come up with anything. The thing is, what do you really expect to save? Maybe you can find someone who will ship it for $4. For an extra $2, I would just buy it and be done. Just my $0.02.
    Fredo, you're my older brother and I love you...but don't ever take sides, with anyone, against the family again...ever.

    Yeah, maybe I'm just being a little stingy..... I took a vow never to pay retail and to never get ripped off in shipping!

    Just my opinion, but keeping that kind of vow sounds like more trouble than the money it will save.

    Tack on a few more incidentals you'll need sooner or later.. maybe some spare tubes or some tape to re-wrap your bars or something.. Bar end plugs are always falling out. Makes the $6 shipping hurt less when you've bought $35 worth of stuff vice $12.
