Where can I buy some good but cheap (contradiction I know )750/800ml water bottles. The ones I see in the shops are like £7/8 and look rubbish

Cheers

I bought a black Boardman branded bottle from Halfords - £5 - I think. Holds 800ml and is pretty durable.

Wilkinson do some cheapo see through bottles - £2 jobbies I think. Reasonable quality too.

My local Poundworld have them for £1 .... blue & pink & look rubbish but fit for purpose.

The purists will probably turn their nose up at this but I just cable tie them to the frame. Put a little bit of handlebar tape on the back of the cage first to protect the paintwork.

The Cycling Weekly website sells them for free but £1.95 postage. If you want 3 or 5 bottles then you pay a bit more, but still cheaper than anywhere else I think.
