    My question for those that use the Coleman jugs, how convenient is it run the hose up to where it is needed without it being in the way for mounting or dismounting the bike?

    What appeals to me with this system very my camelback would be the ease of cleaning the unit.

    I have been using the motojug for many 1000s of miles and no issue with the tube.

    Could you post a pic of the tubing on your bike? Does one simply run the tubing under the body work from the Coleman and reappear by the handlebars?

    I’ve used jug-based hydration system before, in both suction and powered-pump versions. A key issue on jug-based systems is how the drinking hose enters the jug, and how that connection is booted or sealed so that rain or road splash can’t follow the outside of the hose and enter the jug. Just something to keep an eye on as you evaluate or install such systems.

    Best,

    This is what I use. It works quite well at keeping the contents cold.

    I run with two 24 oz. under armour thermos'.

    Keeps water cold for hours in 100+ temps during the summers here. Rest/gas stop, recharge with water bottles bought at convenience stores when one is empty.

    It is a long tube. I don't keep it on the bike. I will try and see if I can fine some old pics. I put it on the right passenger peg and run the tube up next to the back of the gas tank and around the left side of the tank bag. I connect the spring to the front of the tank bag. I have never seen any thing work it's way back down the tube.

    Not to forum hijack, but there was some good discussion (with pictures) on the IBA forum a couple years ago
