thinking this could increase my distance between stops (4 bottles versus 2). i'm not worried about the weight of additional bottles/liquid/the mount.

do these things (e.g. profile "aqua rack") accommodate or interfere with under-the-seat packs? any other observations?

thanks!

I don't use one, but my riding buddy does. He doesn't want to use a camelback (he thinks they're uncool). He loves his. He does not have an "underseat" pack. I doubt there is room for both.

I had one one my bike with a pack also. There is definatly room for both depending on your seat height. I never found myself going through enough water to justify 4 bottles. Seemed like a good idea at the time, I guess it just depends on how much h2o you drink. But there was no problem with the pack and the rack.

Yep, no problem to hang a pack off the holders either. Mine actually attached to the seat rails, most are like that. I believe profile design makes an acutal post mounted unit.
