Hi,

 

This may seem trivial, but the screen printing on most of the water bottles that I have used, seems to peel off in the first couple of uses.

 

Within the first 2 weeks, it looks like it has been through

the wars.

 

Have you used any where the printing STAYS ON for longer :)

.......Or you could train and ride less, .......less use, longer lasting.! :rolleyes:

 

...................but I have no idea, I wash my bottles in the dishwasher, that scours any print off in the first wash cycle.

I wash mine in the dishwasher too but the prints seem to remain intact - I need to get some of the detergent Grumpy is using :huh:

 

Same problem though - bottle cage makes them look really used really fast. Doesn't bother me because it suits my rugged mountain-biker look B)

you must be rough on your bottles (or your cage is). I've got bottles in my cupboard that I've had for 8 years that still dont look that bad. And these are the free ones you get in the goodie bags, so I doubt they are quality stuff.

Well you should be replacing your water bottles regular anyway cause they contain unhealthy chemicals which leach out and guess where they go....you sluk them.

As far as I can remember, my bottles have a 3 or 4 underneath them....... I am more concerned as to why you are on a woman's cycling website..... :eek: :clap:

OK........be seriaas......

If it is really such an issue buy the clear bottles which seems to last forever.Plus you can see which bottle has juice or water.Get the nice soft ones with lots of plasticizers so they dont scratch on the bottle bracket and you can pretend you have had a blood trasnsfusion
