I checked out the hydration systems recently and was amazed by how much they weight (without any water in them!). Add in the sweaty back and the buildup of slime bacteria in them and I'm sticking with my water bottles.
BTW, you can get a cage to add two more water bottles behind your seat. Common for triathletes.
