Bottles

I use Elite jet water bottles. They're biodegradable, they do not leak and the flow from the nozzle is very strong

Water Bottle

Definitely the Bivo One. Expensive but works really well and looks great.

My current ones--Tacx Source--work fine and are good for on bike use, but not so great to take indoors/offices and such. Any suggestions?

Insulated water bottles are great. They aren't hard to drink from. NO harder than an ordinary bottle.
They will, if you go about it right, keep water cool for hours.
It's not so much that I have to have ice water, it's that if you use a "regular" water bottle when it's 90 degrees out the water gets hot.

I found these a while back. Easy squeeze. Not a lot of marking. Just a bottle.
Able to match my black/orange bike.

Podium Chill 25 Oz FTW! Even take them on tour. No problem drinking while managing a full loaded bike.

I also have a couple of Camelbak Podiums, which are heavier duty and have a more fancy valve - although I'm not really sure what it adds to the party!



But if you want something that looks nice, then there's this from Elite:-



Or this if you want a fast flowing nozzle:-

I second the Camelbak Podium. I bought one at my LBS and have been very pleased with it.

I use Klean Kanteen bottles from 40oz to 16oz mostly in VO cages. The Mojave does well with 32oz or 48oz Nalgene or KK 40oz.

I don't think many people want to mess with another person's bottle. I have left mine at a park a couple of times. Plenty of homeless and drug addicts around the area and park where I stop. I left a bottle there a couple of times for 2 or 3 hours making a round trip. The bottles were still there untouched. I know if I saw another cyclist's bottle, I wouldn't touch it. One thing out of respect and the other out of fear of the cooties.

I remember on a group ride, one rider forgot a bottle then borrowed one from another rider. No thanks, I'll die of thirst before borrowing another's bottle.
When you eat at a restaurant do you insist on a brand new glass? Silverware? Bring your own plate from home and have them put the food on it?
