Not a good fit,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PedalPro 750ml Stainless Steel Bicycle Bottle & Metal Bottle Cage (Misc.)
I bought this to replace a plastic bottle from Halfords that no matter how many times it was cleaned still made the water taste strongly of plastic / chemicals.
The new bottle seems pretty good. It's a large size and stainless steel is supposed to be better than the various plastics. I'm suspicious about the neck of the bottle, which appears to be a different metal - aluminium perhaps? - though this is a very small area. The opening is a good size for drinking from. This is necessary for metal bottles where you can't squeeze the water out. The thread doesn't seem so good though, with the lid stiff to remove. This may loosen over time or may break first. It's hard to say.
The cage is not so good. To say it's a tight fit is an understatement. It seems like it's not designed for the bottle it's so tight. Also, because it's metal with no rubberised bits the bottle gets scratched every time you push it in or pull it out. Not a good design, hence only three stars.
