It's just not true. The water from this bottle tastes plastic-y. I have other bottles from which water has no plastic taste, so it's not me. Apparently removing taste is some kind of rocket science.
In fairness to Specialized I'd like to retract that. Perhaps I didn't clean the bottle sufficiently, but doing a taste test recently, I didn't notice any plastic taste.
