I'm looking for a 36 oz water bottle for those rides that do not offer an option for refueling. Please let me know. Thx

May be too big for bottle cage...biknben

A riding companion has a huge bottle. Don't know how many Ozs but I've never seen anything so big. He regularly has to check to make sure isn't coming out of the cage. The cage isn't strong enough to keep it in place.

Hydration packs do have some draw backs but may be worth considering.

this thing works great, and is worth every penny, for long/unsupported rides. i was even carrying water for the other guys this weekend. fashion police may not like it, tho.
how do you manage a saddle bag with this? nmjose_Tex_mex

I ride a Trek Y-Foil. There isn't much room for water bottles, or cages for that matter. I use the Aqua-Rack system. It clamps around the seat post and angles out towards the back. I use a small saddle bag that attaches to my saddle rails. I suppose if you slid the rack down to where the seat post meets the frame you could use a larger bag? I really like the rack. If you buy one, get some rubber hair bands. My wife uses them in her hair. The cage comes with a rubberband around it for grip. They break pretty easy. These bands work great as replacements! Speaking of hair bands, I liked Cinderella the best.
LOL: hair bands! d'oh!JS Haiku Shop

same here--not about Cinderella, though. "Ratt" and "Poison" were good ones. j/k.

yep--smaller seatpack. just large enough for spare tube, inflator, and a couple co2 carts. put the rest in my camelbak. told you--look out for the fashion police!

72 oz camelbak refilled once
1x 24-oz polar bottles refilled once
1x 24-oz polar bottle filled once
1x 32-oz magnum
= 248 ounces of liquid

248 oz =/~ well hydrated 77-miler in 95+ degree weather in 42x16 (saturday).

carry more = stop less, IME.

never can carry too much water.
