Let’s be totally honest here. When was the last time you actually used the water bottle on your bike? If you’re riding it anywhere that requires locking up (read: the bar), you’re probably more concerned with an additional libation than hydration. With all the flasks, wine holsters and other containers available, along with camelbaks for water, the frame mounted water bottle is all but obsolete. The Kuat Bike Bottle Lock easily slides into the spot in your
heart bike that the old bottle filled and it’s far more useful. It might look like a bottle at first glance, but it’s actually a 5′ long coiled 8mm cable that locks back onto itself. No more chainlock over the shoulder. No more U-lock kryptoniting the ass pocket in your jeans. No more having to deal with carrying a cable lock. Plus, it has a compartment on the bottom “for storage of keys and paraphernalia.” We’re sold.
