I just discovered at $29.95 the Platypus Kayak Hydrator Hydration System with its own insulated
pouch. I just got two yellow ones and have them hanging side by side behind my Lightning seat. With
4 clips on the sides to attach to the seat and reflective tape for visibility, these seem to be just
the ticket for those long hot rides coming up soon.

Actually, they are still on the site, but if you don't get the full address into the line, you'll
get the "product no longer available" message. Just make sure that the stuff on the second line
is part of the whole url that you put in the address. Sometimes adding the < and > at the
beginning and end of the address, as I have done, will keep them "together" in a posting.

Sounds like a good idea, however what is the method used to clean Hydration Pack? Is this a hard and
time comsuming task?

I have used a Platypus hydration bladder for about two years now and almost never clean it (the
inside of the bladder that is). I clean the tube and bite valve every time I fill the bladder, and I
rinse out the bladder when ever I refill it, but that's not often, since most of the time I'm just
"topping it off"

I have had no issues with off tastes, odors, mold, etc. I don't put anything in the bladder but
water, but I almost never empty it either. If your hydration bladder contributes tastes or odors to
your drinking water, throw it away and buy a replacement. It's not worth the effort and risk.

As usual, my $0.02 worth <Chas> Haluzak Hybrid Race -- the inline wheelchair

Actually except for the impossibility of biking, I like snow, ice, cold, heavy wool sweaters, big
pots of hot soup, and getting into our outdoor hot tub in a hurry and hunkering down.

C.C., still eating those FL oranges I schlepped back with me.

I only fill mine with tap water and I never clean mine. (and this is in the mold capital of the US).
I rinse mine out, refill and store in the refridgerator.

I used to use Efferdent tablets (False teeth cleaner) in my Camelbak, but I don't even do
that any more.

Not soon enough. About three inches of snow in the Cincinnati area yesterday, and woke up to
single digits (temperature, not hands and feet) this morning. I am really looking forward to
taking my Greenspeed back to Florida in March for Bike Florida, then doing it all again in April
for Florida Bicycle Safari.

Carol, a TE doesn't make a bad ice biking machine. I put a Noikian studded tire on the rear of my TE
and a knobby BMX tire on the front for winter riding. The combo is surprisingly stable and easy to
handle. A foot of snow might be a bit much but less is do able.

That would be a good idea if I could bike on trails or roads with no cars. It's the slush spray from
passing cars that does me in. The Boston version of "I've been slimed!"

But thanks for the tip -- if Boston ever builds more no-motor-vehicle trails, I'll do the tire thing
in winter.
