Which Campy Water Bottle Vote

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Which Campy Water Bottle Vote

Yeah another pointless poll...but cast your vote for the hell of it

Here's three Campagnolo water bottles I'm considering.

The top two I believe are 2007 models. (one is 750ml the other 500ml)
The set on the bottom I believe are 2006 (650ml)

I prefer the screw tops, but find the 750ml goofy and too big, while the 500ml too small.

The old design 650 ml looks like a good compromise.

Anyone have experience with these?

Me personally the more water the better. I drink like a madman when I'm riding.

On a lark I ordered two of the 750's. Despite being stamped "Campagnolo" and "Made in Italy" they suck. The top doesn't quite seal so you have to nurse the bottle instead of squirting it. Cheap bling, though.

I've got the 500 ml because it was on sale and a water bottle. DO NOT GET IT, there's no place to hold on to it. During the winter I almost drop it every time because i'm wearing gloves. During the summer it's just annoying because there's no place to grip it, the 750 gives you a little ridge to hold onto, but from now on i'm making sure my water bottles have a good spot to pull them from a tight cage.

I strongly advise against the 500 ml, but then again, it's just a big inconvenience, it still holds water

Good point!
so that means the 500 and the 650 are less than ideal...

I have four of the 750's. They are my favorite bottles. I have no problem with them leaking or getting a grip on them. I even like them better than my specialized bottles.

Two of each. Cover all of your bases:

Short, cool ride - 1 small
Medium ride (or long ride with ample refill stops) - 2 small
Long ride (or any ride in high heat) - 2 large

I have two of the 750 ml's and they work fine no leaks and easy to grab. I got them because I wanted grey to match my color scheme and I just happen to have a campy grouppo wich helps.

Thanks all!
Since I drink/sweat like a horse and like the idea of a screw top and grippy indents I ordered a pair of the new 750 ml bottles.
$6.95 a piece at Cambria

saw some on ebay (but more expensive) and then there's some sites with .co.uk extensions....but to be honest I didn't shop around much since the price was so cheap anyways.

...there could be coupons for cambria (didn't see any myself during my quick search....again 10% off on 6.95 is kinda silly)

I had experienced no effect warranting a 5 dollar price increase over a standard bottle. Cold water in that bottle stayed cooler longer for maybe a few minutes, and by only a few degree's. I did, however, like how big they were, how nice and snug they fit in the cages and the fact they came in many cool colors, but still not a worth-while investment in my opinion.

Strike 3: When I got my order yesterday, they somehow got the 295mm and 293mm spokes I ordered changed to 259mm.

To their credit, their customer service department has been top notch in responding to my emails and responses to the phone calls. I will be very careful about what I order from him in the future though.

Heck, you've got a nice Bianchi, get a Bianchi water bottle.



Then go to the Gatorade web site, and use the Flavor Finder to find the color that best matches your frame.
