Seems a bit distant, looking out at the latest storm to sweep over us, but there will be a time next summer when it is hot and sunny and I might be in a sportive or timetrial. I always find I slow down quite a bit when I go for a drink from the bottle, sometimes as much as 10kph. It is not that I am not still pedalling, but the push just goes out of me as I lean back and fumble around to put the bottle back.
So I was thinking has anyone tried using a camelbak or similar hydration pouch, but worn it under their skinsuit to reduce the aero impact? Sneeky tactic, yes, but does it just look too silly to be worth it. Or if you don't mind a skinsuit will you put up with anything to get a better performance?
I fancy a water tube is easier to use than a bottle, anyone recommend their water pouches? I like the look of the Assos Spider Bag.
