leo, Sir...you can pull out the reservoir (from the bottle cap) for cleaning and filling up of Gel. its a snap-on, same way in pulling out of the plunger. Just give a holler if you want me to post pics
As I mentioned earlier I have one of these bottles , I was not really impressed with the function . But taking into account that my preferences or needs may be very different from another user of this product . What may SUCK for me , may be the bomb for someone else . So to be fair to the product , I will mention what i dislike about it and if it does not seem to be a issue with other users they can go and buy one if it suits their needs .
I initially intended to use this bot for road riding and the occasional tri race . After using it a few times , here is my field report.
It is also quite difficult to determine the amount of Gel being consumed , its reservoir ( based on my use ) can take in two packs of Clif Gel . I normally would like to consume one gel every 45 or 50 min of paced riding , it is hard to approximate what would be one half of the reservoir, as compared to consuming one gel packet every 45 to 50 .
Another frustration is that the gel/mouth cap does not conform with a standard bottle neck.
Although the only reason I wanted it to mate with a standard neck is so that i could use a Polar bottle to keep my water cool . The only reason I wanted to use a polar bottle with the cap is because the water gets warm and unlike regular bottles , I cant freeze it 80% the night before and top it when I go out .
Operation can be cumbersome initially , but I guess with more frequent use it should become easier .
The plus side of this bottle is that it looks nice and could be a conversation piece .
I will use the bottle again and try it out some more , if it ends up impressing me , I will post again and mention its redeeming qualities ( used it twice , threw it in my closet and went back to my Polar bottle)
stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.

anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....

anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.

lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.

anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
