when you get desperate enough to do an order next year Cake I will pass on the details........

the minimum buff order was over £1500 and when it was time to order we only had names down for half of them.......

a kindly pirate offerred to pay for the balance so that we could go ahead with the order............as it turned out I didn't have to take advantage of their kind offer as they all went within a month or so............as soon as the word got around and people saw them then they all went.

I'm fine paying up whenever you want JD ? And I'd round the bottle cost up just so we overpay rather than underpay.

Is it worth asking how scuff resistant the printing will be ? Most bottles have been fine, but some of the ones I've used lost their design very easily - I think Foska was like that for me.

I know the La Santa and Ironman bottles keep their print on though.

Cheers !

thanks cougie.  i'll round it up slightly.

i'll check about the skuffing you mention.  it looks like the design is done with a film wrapped around the bottle.  the bottles on the site look pretty tough though.  also, if you subscribed to triathlete europe and got the free bottle (that's what got me thinking about it as every bottle i have is branded differently showing my individuality), it's the same people we're getting to make ours.  read a website that just said look on your nice bottles and see who made them.

actually the cervelo test team made teh nicest bottle i've got,  but i couldn't track down the maker i think.  or they needed something like 5000 ordered minimum which is a few bottles beyond us.

ah, i've only just signed up so a bottle is what you get now.

did a bit of googling and it seems the bottles are basically SIS bottles.  so that's good.  but i can't find out much about their printing.

I had a cervelo bottle in a goody bag from a sportive, lid broke about the fifth time I used it. My SIS ones have lasted forever though (with regular Milton-ing!)

JD - these bottles are a great idea.

I tell you what I would also like if you need more ideas and that's a decent Pirate branded sports bag. The IMCH bag I got was great for about 3 months and is now falling to bits so if anyone is with me on this, I am happy to find out more and try and see what can be organised. I have a feeling they can be bought and branded Pirate but also each with a unique name on the side i.e. your name! whoopy!

Only comment I would have is that I really like the SIS rubbery made tit-thing you suck on () rather than the horrid tasting plastic ones? Are these ones rubber or plastic, do you know?

 Not a huge deal but would be great if rubberised.

Clean them with Milton sterilising fluid.

Works well, I was told by a cyclist that you should do them weekly if there used often. I try and do them once a month if I can remember. The smell usually reminds me

Steradent's even better. The black fluffy bits float off then, just like they do with your teef.

D'oh, I try and put it in alphabetically and my double spacing ruins the list - how do I stop it doing that?!

Just a caution - especially to those racing at Roth. Don't use your Pirate bottles during the race, at the drinks stations you're expected to exchange your empty bottles for full ones. I always take old ones with me.
