True unless you and significant other both ride bikes and prefer the new Camelbak Podium bottles in which case the cost rockets to $$$ if replacing bottles 4x per year.mellowJohnny wrote:Seriously though buying a new set of bottles four times a year will cost you like $80.

- In your not so bright text, the outcome would be that in 5 years time you would spend 400 dollars on bottles only . . .
(5 x 80)
a) Thanks for breaking down the math for me, that was helpful.
2) Thanks for looking out for my financial well-being.
I'll also spend $2,000 on tires, $400 on gels/bars/drink, and $150 on bar tape. Is that OK by you or am I being "not so bright"? I really value your opinion...
If you do use some kind of drink mix you just need a good bottle brush. There's no reason to buy new bottles every year.
I have Camelbak waterbottles .... she strips the nozzle and lays the whole lot (including the bottle) in sterilized water with Milton baby bottle cleaner ...
I've been using the same waterbottles for 3 years, and they are as clean as a whistle

I use diluted clorox to clean/sterilize.
Fill a bottle with water-diluted crorox and leave it 2~3 hours.
After then, drain out all clorox, wash with water using brush 2~3 times.
Furs and other pollutions are perfectly removed after that process.
caution : Never use umdiluted clorax - it is very strong alkaline soluton.
