Check out the Nalgene Narrow-Neck 16oz. it's about a full inch shorter than a traditional cycling bottle.

I recently was given one with an REI logo on it. But I looked on REI's website and couldn't find it. It's a really high quality one, too. Good luck.

The most old school small water bottle I have left is a 10th anniversary Coors Classic from '84. It's about 17 cm tall and is made by Specialized. They still make the bottle: http://specializedwaterbottles.com/bottles/ .

Whooo Hoooo....... I just looked on ebay under vintage. I cannot believe the prices for the old water bottles! Anywhere from $45 to over $100 bucks. I don't want logos or colors. White is fine. I guess I'm going to flea markets and junk stores to find a couple. Thanks everyone. Still open to ideas or leads.

I was given one from REI also on a charity ride. It's a Specialized bottle.

I got one of Specialized's shorties thrown in when I bought my Bike Friday.

talk to your Specialized dealer , maybe they can order some without shop logos on it

since there is a printing minimum batch.

Can you tell me exactly what size you want and what quality? Years ago, a bike manufacturer gave me a few cases of brand new water bottles for kids bikes. I still have a dozen or so, but I should tell you that these are not insulated and most likely contain chemicals that are frowned upon these days. If they fit the bill, though, and you want to cover shipping, I'll send you a bunch.

I'm assuming your trying to squeeze it into a tight-pack situation and not looking for some collectable.

Try this for $5.00

They usually give out these types of bottles for free at regional charity rides. Expect them to be littered with logos though.

Unfortunately, I'm leaving for Florida tomorrow AM and won't be able to get to this until after Christmas. Can you PM me around December 26th? Or e-mail me directly at (address encoded) tommontalbano at google's mail server.
