Drinking systems

Hi all,

I just wanted to get opinions on drinking systems for tri/tt bikes. I would like a solution for my tri bike during my Ironman event.

As yet I have found the following;

Looks nice, but is very expensive.


Again looks like a nice system, still pretty pricey.


A friend of mine had one of these and he said the straw annoyed the hell out of him, plus he had loads of problems fitting the system, and it staying on.

Are these my only options?

    hey grant
    I've got the profile one on mine, its very handy to have, easy to use on nice flatter straight bits of road. wasn't that hard to fit, if you buy then clamp system for it and not try to make ur bars closer to hold it in.
    does rattle a bit cos of the straps that hold it down.
    plus i think they do a two sided bottle to have different liquids in

    I have the bontrager aero race pack, the straw is ok, doesn't bother me and its really easy to fit with velcro straps to put round the aerobars. Oh and it keep the drink reasonably cool, can be filled on the fly and has room for a gel or bar or something like that too.

    Profile Design, double, does it for me - hold plenty of fluids, easy to fill on the go and easy to drink from. You get used to the straws in your face .
