not really a silly reason, but we're all entitled to our opinions. not putting a cage on a bike that can fit one is a big fail. probably over 50% of my rides are one bottle/no pack.

I just received one of these http://www.camelbak.com/en/International/Sports-Recreation/Packs/Palos-4-LR.aspx

A bottle never seems like quite enough and I don't like having my tools in my shirt. This Camelbak product is relatively minimal, can easily hold my phone and tools and 1.5L of water, which is about as much as I consume on an average ride.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

No WB inside the FT is a legitimate deal breaker. There are many good bikes to choose from so the need to compromise is all but gone.

Just like the RM Altitude , and the Devinchi Spartan . No bottle …., no dice for many.

Granted you could change the rear shock on the altitude and slip a bottle in

I highly doubt that the Evil crew is losing sleep over the lack of water bottle mounts. I am sure every single frame is spoken for.

Altitude Rally Edition only. All the others, in all sizes, fit a large bottle.

It was an issue for me at first - it really bothered me when I saw that a bottle cage could easily have been placed in the front triangle. BUT the bike fucking rips and can honestly say its the most fun bike I've owned in years. To allay my hydration issue I've invested in a bib with a carry system for days I'm not schlepping a camera sack.

You can all go to hell. I'll be joining you shortly and I'm bringing beer and cheetos.

Employee at Fanatik said they sold 300 followings last year. I was astounded.

I was only joking. That's great.

Good luck to them.

Too busy gouging my eyes out from that blue shift housing.

And those blue grips.

The damn valve stems aren't even lined up properly.
