Coug, my mate only has lugs for one bottle as her frame is tiny, is that side bottle still an option then?
And Brit...i have no idea why.
I would like a look ata picture of the side one............where can you put it so that it doesn't get hit by the legs..........and how do you attach it without any lugs
Seren, you legs dont hit ... its the opening that is to the sideYou can attach without lugs with cabelties and a plastic lug type thingy
EP if you look on my gallery in my profile - then go to the album titled "q" you will see my home made speed fill type thingy works a treat
"BTW - why were seat mounted cages banned? Seems like a great place for a bottle or two???"
they're only banned by the UCI for pro riders - the ban doesn't apply to tri. I don't now what specific reason the UCI have used but as they have also banned frame integrated drinks bottles as well (like Cervelo and Trek have used), I suspect it's just to ensure a level playing field for all pro riders by only having caged bottles - sort of one size fits all. and probably to get better sponsorship opportunities on all the ones that get thrown away....
can't see the advantage of the side opening one.........as there just doesn't seem to be the room to fit another cage.........and not sure that my ability with cable clips would keep one on.........i will stick to the tri bars one
Thought I would pop in and update this thread.
I previously bought an F2 speedfil and went out on my bike for the first time today since fitting it and have to say it is highly recommended.
I only did 27 miles but I was able to take on fluid whenever I wanted and drunk almost a whole bottle and I didn't have to stop to do so.
Definitely a thumbs up from me
I have a Scott xs (48) and I can fit one 750 bottle on the diagonal and a 500 on the upright. Have been thinking about the speedfill or getting cages on the back. Interesting to read this thread
