Trails are great today

Trails were beautiful today. Unfortunately, my creatine dind't last an hour before it was frozen solid at 4 degrees. I know a camelback tube will freeze even faster. Any suggestions for something that can handle the temps and fit the cage?

Buy one of the insulation sleeves that go over the tube. They also help keep the water cooler in the summer.

go to sports-recreaction, then accessories, then additional parts.

There is always someplace in the world dry enough for kick'n up a little dirt.

North Towne had a water bottle that had a insulated inner bag type deal. Looked solid without trying it out myself.

Thanks for the input fellas. Found this after digging online for a few. If it don't work, I'm not out much.
