    Also super easy to clean bottles after a ride. I just rinse them out, no washing, and they come out fine.

    The only negative I've found is that if you don't have a good water bottle cap, it can leak out over a ride and make a mess on the bike. As with the bottles, easy to clean up, but a sticky mess until you do.

    Amazing how 12 scoops in a 22 ounce bottle tastes disgusting the night before a ride, but the very next day on mile 10, nothing goes down better. I do a concentrate this way and chase it with water from my hydration pack.

    Nope. It’s a concentrate. Sip it and chase with water from hydration pack. I use it on my frequent 30+ mile rides.

    Wow. I thought my 4 scoops was concentrated. I don't think I use more than 1-2 scoops per hour.

    Aye. In fairness that’s a bottle problem, not a TW problem. I don’t want any bottles leaking anything...I don’t recall any leakers this century. :geek:

    I hope it's the caffeinated. With 12 scoops, though, you need a bigger hall pass from mama. Maybe something in the 300 mile range? :p

    I forget who it was, but someone pointed out a few years back that the TW leakage is bad for bottom brackets... I believe it. If I have a leaker, it leaves a gritty trail right to the BB.

    Any reviews on the Tailwind Rebuild? Coffee flavor in particular.

    Rebuild works..I haven’t tried the coffee flavor, but chocolate and vanilla.

    it’s kinda like a gritty chocolate milk. The water ratio they recommend is off. I like it much more concentrated.

    rrally only use it after really big rides(WW50, Kokopelli, full days on the bike).

    I tried the coffee when it was still in testing and it was pretty good... I still prefer chocolate milk or Ensure after a really big ride. There might be a few packs leftover if you want to try.

    The rebuilds are basically a salty Ensure. That works for me, kids are split 50/50 on it.

    We're still talking about this? I think we've established that TW is the sole reason you beasts can mash out the 10,000' days that you do.
