I've done all of the above.

I guess the thing about it is 1. there's no UCI pro who even bothers with the aero water thing during a TT--they just reach for the bottle. And for folks who have their bikes tuned up in wind tunnels, I would think that if there was a huge disadvantage to reaching for your bottle for a few seconds, we'd see a lot more of the aero water buckets.

Even aero can look ridiculous. If this stuff worked so well, why doesn't every TT god use it??
