That's why I think it's better if they just save the money they'd spend trying to upgrade it and buy the bike they want it to be. Then keep the Mongoose around for a beater bike.

I fully agree with this. I refuse to use a non-insulated bottle, especially when biking during the heat of summer. With non-insulated bottles, you leave the house at 8 AM, your water is warm by 10.
