Water bottle for hot liquids?

Postby Gamblor » Sun Dec 16, 2012 21:16 pm

Apologies if this is in the wrong section.

I'm after a bottle that could keep tea or coffee warm for a couple of hours and also fit in my bike cage. I know there's a few about, but can anyone recommend one based on experience?

Of course I'll have a bottle of water in my backpack aswell for 'proper' hydration, just want hot drinks easily available with the colder weather we've been having.

Cheers

Build a fire and boil some water. You could also use it to roast some fluffy bunnies for luch.

Stainless steel vacuum flask from Tesco that fits my bottle cage, think it was £3.99

I've never found one that keeps liquids properly warm. You can get bottle mounts that adjust and fit decent flasks.
I think Monkii off of cylcemiles.co.ukdo one.
I've found that exposed on a frame even a good flask gets cold on longer rides. I'd suggest getting a decent vacuum flask and keeping it in a back pack maybe wrapped in a fleece or similar.

If you're putting tea or coffee in it, make it black. Add the milk (if you take it) when poured.
I used to take a flask to work years ago, and it never tasted right if I added the milk to the flask, I guess ithe milk sort of 'went off' a bit after keeping it hot for a while

Weirdly this was on radio 2 a while back. Iirc it is because the heat from the drink 'cooks' the milk, making it taste a bit rank.
