I know this has been asked before, but when it came up last time I didn`t give it much attention; but Im getting fed up of removing Whey protein splashes from my bike frame after every ride, the bl..dy stuff sets like cement! What Water Bottles are out there that actually do contain the liquids without dispersing them over bike and rider??

  • Camelbak bottles from £8 up. Dear - but they work.

    Er, all of mine. :)

    Edited to be a bit more helpful. SIS, Zyfel and a couple of eBay no-names. All secure, but the SIS feels the most robust.

    .

    All of mine work well also. No brands in particular. Maybe a bit more tightening on your part?

    ++ As long as you remember to close the bit valve after using it.

    Best solution, drink something of benefit on your ride, like energy drink or electrolyte drink. Save the protein drink for afterwards. That whey (see what I did there :wink: ) a quick wipe down with a baby wipe will remove any splashes.
    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
    Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved

    I use Wiggle own branded bottles. They work fine for me.

    Camelbak Podium are the best I've used.

    But why are you drinking whey protein during a ride? :?
    More problems but still living....

  • Thanks for the advice; much appreciated. I think I will give the Camelbak Podiums a try.
