Same bottle as the regular podium, slightly softer to handle, and keeps liquids marginally colder (Is that worth the price?).
BUT, there are softer *cough* (Specialized Purist) and the nozzle is a nuisance to clean when used with anything other than water, thus reducing the life of the bottle and possible growth spots for mold and funk.
I had bought these thinking they were the best upgrade to water bottles since ice and YES, they are great, BUT they present some of the same issues other water bottles have.
One is that it could be softer *cough* (Specialized Purist) and two is that the nozzle is a nuisance to clean when used with anything other than water, thus reducing the life of the bottle and possible growth spots for mold and funk. Two stars off for each of those and a little hint for the consumer.
Check the Capo bottles in the bike section?
bonus points if it sits next to your pedro's bottle opener tool
Came in just to post Rule 31:
does everything you need it to and no need to spend a penny more.
Grow man hands and get the job done
aweome bottles, so soft in hand easy to squeeze. THERE IS NOT A BETTER CYCLING WATER BOTTLE!
this looks exactly like a specialized purist water bottle... wonder if it is as good or soft.
Argyle! Argyle Argyle Argyle !
After a little high speed misstep I hooked my toe on sharp rock and ripped the toe! Its been over 9 months of steady use, and even the rip won't be enough to stop these, as I'll just glue it up and keep rocking. But I thought I'd share. THIS IS IN NO WAY MEANT TO BE A KNOCK AGAINST THESE SHOES. If anything its a pro they are awesome still.

not much else to say but perfect for most things sans the Epic Expedition.
All Hail the E-Lite!
Super Sticky on old slimed really classic (aka beat up) feet! Perfect for small feet and friction that cant be matched.
I find a good pair of shades essential. I can forgo most other accessories but shades have to be there. These are them. On just about all excursions these make the cut. Super Light and fit well enough to forget they are even there. REALLY!The dark lens are great in general but for big mountain days or true exposure these arent enough, but thats where another set comes into play. The lighter lens work well in low light and just as well for just keeping stuff out of your eyes.My only gripe is that the top bar comes directly into my line of sight while cycling. I gave it a few weeks to really see what was what, but when bent over the bars it really gets in your vision. It may just be a personal fit issue but worth noting.
What is there not to like? A Lightweight tent that is quick and intuitive to set up. At 3lbs 14.5oz its not the lightest of options. But in the "Fast-Fly" setup the weight & bulk drops to 2lbs 12oz. The tent fabric is quick drying. Additionally it fits two medium sized people snugly. All in all a fantastic tent.
