This is a bit fiddley setting it up with all the fasteners but once it's on it works great for me. I put it on my BH G7 to have another bottle holder for longer rides (centuries) without getting in the way of throwing my leg over the saddle. It holds the bottles that are designed for it very well, bottle launchs for me yet including a few bumpy railroad crossings. It is a bit difficult to pull a bottle out of though, need to twist it a bit to get it out. I haven't tried it with full Camelbak bottles, and probably won't as I have heard those won't stay in, empty Camelbaks stay in fine though. As soon as I finish my first bottle from a frame mount bottle holder I swap it with the one in this saddle mount so I can finish the uninsulated bottle before it get's too warm. I would definitely recommend this one for anybody looking for a single bottle holder to attach to their saddle rails.
My average hydration requirements while cycling are 24 ounces per hour. More on a hot day (2x in Phoenix!), less on cool days. I've only cramped once, on a hot century ride with headwinds.... and vowed to never "go there" again, in regards to coming up short on hydration. SKRATCH Labs gets kudos for their science and product development. One and a half scoops for a 24 oz bottle keeps me in a "safe" zone for an hour, or slightly more. Good stuff!
I live in AZ and hydration is important all year . Especially in the warmer months. I do 50-60plus miles nearly every weekend and I donï¿½t cramp or dehydrate. They taste great as well. Grape is my ï¿½Go toï¿½ flavor
Unlike other sports drink mixes, I never get tired of this product. The fact that it is made with real fruit makes it refreshing and easy on the stomach, whether you are sweating buckets during long summer efforts, doing a grueling climbing or interval day, or racing. It is sweet, but never cloying, just enough to make reaching for your bottle a bit of joy. Even tastes good when it's on the warm side. It has helped keep cramps at bay on really hot and humid days where exertion levels are high. When my bottles are empty and I have to refill with something else at a convenience store, it is always a bit of a disappointment. A bit on the expensive side, but worth it.
