"Ditch the saddlebag": Dib Sports launch 2-in-1 hydration and storage bottle

Designed and made in the USA, the Dib Bottle is available in regular and large sizes and is designed to house both fluid and repair kit

If you want to lighten your load and keep your puncture repair kit and hydration all in one place, the new Dib Bottle from Dib Sports could be the answer. The patented modular contraption is made up of five individual pieces and is compatible with a wide variety of bottle cages.

It's already fairly common for ultra-distance cyclists and triathletes to simply use a drinks bottle as a tool storage or nutrition box mounted on the seat tube or down tube, as running a rear-mounted bottle means a saddlebag won't fit; but the Dib Bottle means you needn't fully sacrifice liquid for flat kit, with the capacity for almost as much fluid as a regular bottle in the large-sized Dib Bottle. 

Weighing in at 145g for the regular size and 157g for the large, the Dib Bottle is fully designed and manufactured in the US, having being refined after numerous early prototypes never made it into production. The five parts consist of a hydration cap, hydration bottle, silicone band, storage bottle, and storage cap; it's also BPA-free with a honeycomb surface treatment.

The Dib Bottle is available in two sizes, with the regular ($22) standing at 22cm tall and holding 340ml of fluid, while the large size ($24) has a 480ml fluid capacity and a height of 26cm. 

Dib Bottle's founder tells us he is selling direct to the consumer at the moment and offers a range of international shipping options, but plans to sell through European distributors later in the year - head over to the Dib Sports website for more info. 

Arriving at in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.

For people who like accessories more than cycling.

Small capacity for liquid and space for lots of tools you probably don't need. 
Not big enough to stash arm warmers or wind/ rain jacket (if you don't want them in a pocket) so I'd probably suggest that an extra bottle such as the fabric one which doesn't need a cage for extra storage space for useful things. 

The kind of thing you'd buy when you start out cycling and then realise there are better solutions.

Like the look of this, don't like using saddle bags, this is ideal for use on its own on shorter rides like commutes when you dont need so much fluid, and allows extra fluid to be taken on longer rides when using 2 cages.

I got a cheap travel mug from TK Maxx. A bit shorter than the standard one. Takes everything for a puncture repair (managed to squeeze a spare tube in as well). Bottle holder keeps it nice and secure. A water bottle in my other holder.

This is up there with bike indicators. Most people have two bottle cages. Stick a superbyasi in one and your drink in the other. I'm out.
