    Seat Mounted Hydration-ValEau

    Anyone have any info. on these? Tried, seen, or heard about it? Wondering if these would be a better option than carrying a heavy, hot camelbak for 8 hours plus??

    I'm questioning the effects of weight carried so high on the bike.

    interesting. I too would be concerned about 42oz of water mounted as high as the seat. Any idea on pricing? I searched the only dealer here in Michigan with no luck.

    Nifty for a road bike I spose with minimal big effort standing pedaling, but for a mountain bike I think that thing would be wagging all over the place. I hate hydration packs but would wear one before mounting that beast to my rig.

    Looks interesting but I'd hate to do a technical descent with that huge pod on the back of the seat. Or a technical ascent for that matter.
