CX'ers. How do you stop you water bottles getting covered in mud/poo?
that’s quite a clean bottle
Only pic I could find that illustrated what I was babbling on about.
or should I just use a hydration pack?
on a cross bike? Burn him!
It’s not just CXers who use bottles.
Sorry, Graham, I thought all non-drop bar cyclerists were Camelbaked up to the eyeballs.

Seriously – for MTB and CX riding I use a hydration pack. Keeps it clean and stops me losing the damn things. I allowed myself to be convinced to go bottles only during a nine day fully supported stage race earlier this year and regretted it.
For those that say contamination not an issue – tell that to the approx 150 riders who got Campylobacter a year or two ago…..
I’m wondering how do you stop your dowtube/seattube mounted bottles getting covered covered in crap? Specifically the bit you plan on sticking in ones cakehole. As the odd time I have used bottle mounts on my old SS bike I always found this an issue. Mud is not an issue, but dog pops etc, is.
…or should I just use a hydration pack?
Just to clarify, I’m not talking racing, more all day on/off road rides.

Cheers, fella 😀
I am surprised, that more companies don’t offer a solution to the muddy spout problem. I wonder if they assume that anyone riding off road, is using a hydration pack or too gnar to need fluids?
Decathlon do them cheap. Having bottles on your forks like my Fargo also helps.
Along with never having learned a foreign language, not having a local Decathlon is one of my biggest regrets.Posted 4 years ago
