Criteria to consider when choosing a bike bottle cage. A good bottle cage and bottle are an absolute must when cycling. In order to stop your bottle flying away the first time you hit a pothole, choose a bottle cage where you have to push slightly to get the bottle back in. Bear in mind that a second bottle cage could be handy for either a second bottle (you could have one bottle of water and another with a sports drink in it), or for carrying tools (you can even get special tool holders). It's up to you to choose whether you want a plastic or aluminium B'TWIN bottle. Is plastic or alu best?
Plastic bottles are light, practical and cheap. If you're a road cyclist, you probably want this kind of bottle. A 550 ml bottle should be enough for an hour and a half of cycling. Of course, it also depends on how much you need to drink, the season, your pace, etc. This type of bottle can also be great for mountain biking, running and even indoor cycling. An aluminium bike bottle has the advantage of being very durable as well as preserving the taste of your drink and keeping it at a constant temperature. It will be heavier than a plastic bottle, but better for hybrid or even mountain bikes. It's also the perfect option for family bike rides.
