Ok, so I haven't used water bottles on my bikes for years now as I mainly ride MTB and take a Camelbak, nut now I'm getting into more road riding I need to buy some water bottles right?
I remember the old style water bottles making anything put in them taste of yucky PVC plastic, have things moved on since then?
I do have a Camelbak Podium water bottle that I use when visiting the gym, but they aren't particularly cheap (at least to a tightwad like me!), it is very good though, and although I've only ever put water in it it never tastes "plasticky" at all
Given that I'll probably want to be putting various energy drinks in these water bottles what do you reccommend? which ones will not make whatever I put in it taste of plastic or the previous energy drink it held?
Are there any firm favourites amongst the road riders on here?
