I have problems taking on fluid whilst on the bike and whilst I was at a Tri today I was looking around to see what other people were doing.
A couple of people had the Speedfil Complete System. I quite like the fact that it holds 1.2 litres, but am somewhat shocked at the price tag. So I have hunted around and found this Speedfil System which will sit in my existing bottle mount, but still carries a hefty price tag considering it is just another water bottle with a pipe attached .
Then I found Handlebar Cage Mount. The item description clearly states that this is for use with the A2 system, but I was wondering whether it would work with a standard water bottle. Also, some websites are claiming that it is used on aero/TT bars only. From my novice perspective, I cannot see how that would be the case but I may be wrong.
The first system I linked to would be good from a capacity point of view, but it is costly. The final link would be ideal as a trial due to the price, but it would limit me to the amount of fluid I could take on a long ride (this is of course dependant on whether it will take a standard bottle and mount on an ordinary handlebar stem.
It would be great if anyone who has any experience of these Speedfil systems could let me know the advantages and pitfalls of the system they use to help me reach a decision.
