Which ones are the sought after ones? I have these two NOS bottles but I need to trim down the water bottle collection!

I've never found a cage to hold them properly. I have two of the ones to the left sat here.

Yeah, they seem a bit narrow? Don’t look the same as others I have seen either.

The Coke bidons used during their sponsorship of The TDF were based on the TA pattern with different type cap nozzle the type in the photo had poblems staying in the cages on rough roadsI think the 2shown are not genuine issue rather a look alike if you find videos with the M /Bike water bottle carriers the bidons taken by/handed up to the riders had different tops

The desireable T.A bottles look like this, Good ones are becoming hard to find and can fetch silly money.. As Coca cola sponsored the TDF in the mid-late 80`s they were the official bidons and ALL teams had to use them . The actual TDF issue bottles had `BOISSON OFFICIELE DU TOUR DE FRANCE` as per this example I have which is even rarer as it marks the start of the 1987 tour stages in Berlin.
