Sidebar: Unbelievably, TW doesn't grow nasty stuff very readily. I would know by now.
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.
How is this thread 16 pages long?
Oh yeah, Tailwind extends everything!
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.
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?
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.
Almost my foot.
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.
Found em... They’re still good. If you want em, Ed, send me a PM with your address and I’ll throw them in the mail.
Unlabeled beta testing:
Haven’t tried the coffee flavor, but the chocolate is delish!!
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.
Package received! Thanks again @Faust29!
Awesome... Glad it found a home before it hit the expiration date.
Looks like something that should be on a table with with stacks-o-cash and a Sheriff standing behind it
