Very Cool and Functions as expected Nov 30, 2010 Having raced mountain bikes for years I was interested in keeping my new mountain bike lite and decided to give this product a try. I've been using it now for 10+ rides and it holds tight, no bottle detaching issues. The release and reattachment requires some getting used to but once you practice with it for a ride or so it goes back into the slot w/o looking. The bottle itself is actually pretty cool too b/c it does not have the pull top on it, making getting to the h2o that much faster.
Worth the $$'s and the cool factor is pretty high too
Innovative new water bottle/bracket system Jun 26, 2010 I've got this system on my road bike. I've been using it for about a month now on my ride to work. The bottle attaches to the bracket through a magnet and a slight wedge which keeps it from popping off.
Pros: Really like the bottles. Doesn't have a nipple that you need to pull out with your teeth. All that's required is a little squeeze of the bottle. Very quick and easy motion to grab and replace the bottle in its bracket, although this takes some getting used to (after a week of use I didn't give it a second thought). Really light weight.
Cons: Requires the special bottle from Vincero so all the free bottles you get on your organized rides stay at home.
Never tried this system on a rough mtn bike trail but I've heard from friends that it works fine.
Overall I think it's a nice improvement over the standard bracket/bottle system. I'm going to keep using it and plan to give it a try on my mtn bike as well.
