Water, as much as I can carry, which happens only to be one 20 oz. water bottle. I wish I could carry more. I drink a ton of water all day long. I only ride 12 miles (an hour on my bike) after work and I'll guzzle 16 ounces before I leave work, drink my 20 ounce bottle at my 6 mile turnaround point, and guzzle another 16 that I left in the car. If I had a place to put 2 water bottles on my bike, I'd probably drink both of those in my 12 miles. I don't have to, but like I said, I drink a ton of water all day long no matter what I'm doing.

My biggest problem now is my single water bottle mount is on the bottom of the downtube because of it being a full suspension bike. That means I either have to stop specifically to drink or I would lose fingers in the tire trying to get it out of the cage as it is about a quarter inch away from the tire.

Can't wait for spring when I pick up a new "real" bike
