Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Interesting. I can't pull that thing off if I WANT (slight exaggeration). I have 4 bottles with the new V3 cap. How seriously should I take this?

I am also not a child.

I have one of those. Now the question is, is it worth going through the hassle to get new $10 water bottle?

edit: oh, you just get a new cap, not a whole new bottle.

They are sending a free cap all you need to do is check all the info and if it does qualify fill out a little info and they send new caps.

It has nothing to do with being of a certain age or anything like that it is a recall and if you need to participate go for it, if not whatever.

I have two and very happy with them, ordered 2 more.

I am not even bothering to look to see if they need to be recalled. Like most things just be sensible with them when they are taken apart to clean etc.

I've had them come loose, but only because it was frozen to the liquid when the cap was removed.

lol I just got home from buying two of them. Luckily, neither of them have the affected date codes. Shops may have pulled the offending ones off the shelves by now.
