"Surprisingly well mixing protein supplement (I use a bottle & shake). The taste is OK, even though I would get the chocolate instead of the banana if got a new bottle now.
The bottle gives the mixing instructions in grams, so it is a bit hard to measure. There is a separate mixing bottle available, should have bought that as well, but I did not find it in Wiggle.

"Works very well. The carb + protein combo foams while mixing and looks rather suspicious in a transparent bottle (as it is milky), but it does the job. Does not irritate the stomach, either."

"The gel is fine, they are taste the same (ie. not good). The folio package opens easily also while riding. The 60 g size is too big, however. It is hard to consume it on one go, and the opened packet cannot be put in the jersey pocket as it messes everyhing up."

"OK pump; very good valve, good "touch", accurate meter, and it is also good looking (if that matters to anyone).
The meter could be located on the top of the pump, however, because it is much easier to see the numbers that way.

 Hot Pack Windproof Jacket
Hot Pack Windproof Jacket
Minimal weight, minimal space, but full wind protection packable jacket. So often when you go out for a ride the weather can change quickly and dramatically so leaving you exposed to the elements. As this jacket has a very small pack size and low weight you can stuff it into a jersey pocket or bag w...

"A very small & light pouch in the back pocket of the jersey. Warms you up very well, but (like all jackets like this) it tends to get you really sweaty if you wear it on too warm a weather, even though it is not a rain jacket.
Well fitting model, does not flap.

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit

"After the first 500 km, the tubeless Atom works just fine. I need to add air every four days, or after a long ride - same as with regular clinchers. As the Atoms have not yet punctured, i do not know how well the Caffelatex seals a hole."

"First 500 km down, and smooth ones they have been. Very good feel on the road, much like tubes. Despite the Finnish sandy & bumpy spring roads, no dents yet.
Of course I am still to see whether they last for 2000 km; and how will it be like to mess with the sealant & try to get the inner tube in, when atom finally decides to leak.

Pros: Comfortable, well rolling

"The first 500 kilometres done. The wheels are veeery nice; fast, responsive, stiff. I am on the heavy side (90 kg), which is beyond the Campagolo "danger alert" of 81, so I cannot tell whether they'll remain true through the next thousands. But the first impression is great.
I have Atom tubeless tires on, and they really add to the comfort of the ride.

Suitable for mountain biking?

All references I've seen for this bottle are related to road bikes. Has anyone used them for mountain biking? I'm wondering they'll grip the bottle tight enough on rough trails.

I do not think it would hold the bottle while driving in the rough terrain.
