-how is the holder of the torhans? (I heard some aero holders are insecure at vibrations and the xlab seems to be very stable)
I've been running the Felt version on my Da since it's inception (had a teammate that hated it and gifted it to me). I've done maybe 20-30 Time Trials with it varying road conditions from perfect to horrible) and at least 1000 miles one the road (~300 of which were on Minneapolis's crappy roads). I've always had my doubts about bottle security with the VR so I always pull it when traveling with the bike on the rack. That being said, when I loaned the VR to Kiley for his shootout and specifically tell him to pull it from the cage when he drives home he forgets....he makes it from Mooresville NC to Philly without losing the bottle, though. I've also found me some nasty potholes that have launched BTS bottles and knocked me out of my pads, but yet the VR holds firm.
I doubt i'll be driving with the VR in the holder any time soon, but my doubts about losing the bottle during a ride/race all disappeared a long time ago. It's not even a thought anymore.
Thanks for the information.
I managed to order the Torhans VR from Torhans USA, they ship it to Europe within 2 or 6 weeks for $25.
