I use the Zipp Vuka Alumina BTA w/ Quickview. Yes I am a Zipp rider, but it's the best package out there for BTA & Garmin mounts. I prefer using regular bottles over any aero hydration solutions for a number of reasons. They don't splash you over bumpy or rough roads, and a good bottle doesn't leak. They are much more easy to replace on the race course rather than trying to squeeze fluid into an aero bottle in a finite amount of time before the discard zone ends. And, the Zipp setup actually fits on my 51cm IA frame. I tried Torhans aero bottles, and it just doesn't work with the headtube length (it hit the wheels), and I can't use them with my Vuka Evo 110 extensions as the rise is so aggressive. The small size Torhans bottle worked, but the capacity was too little. The Zipp setup runs with the bottle backwards, so if you have extensions like mine, it makes for easy removal and stowage of the bottle.

Thanks Josh! It looks like the Zipp Vulka BTA w/ Quickview and the TriSport BTA 1.1 mount (what I am currently using) is the same thing. I just slightly modified the mount to run the torpedo bottle. I'll give the bottle method, what your doing, a try and discard the xlab bottle for a while to see if that works/feels better.

BTW congrats on the race in Dubai!

My friend lost the rubber cover of his IA.
Had me make a custom bento & storage box.
Tried to clean up his cockpit as well.
Used magnets for the covers.

I really really dont understand why all bike manufacturors dont automatically produce these kind of storage options for their costumers, it seems beyond stupid to loose costumer because you have not made a piece of plastic :S

If you guys can hang on a few months...Felt's working on it. It's much better now.

Felt hasn't dropped the ball, they left the game. By now, they could (should) have released anything better than the crap calpac they spec'd the bikes with.

They have all the measurements, but users are left to make their own products and try and figure out what works for different sizes.

Why wait another couple months? My season starts on Sunday. I would pick one of these up today, if available. IF Felt ever does come out with something, and it is better than that, then I'll go for it.

Waiting a couple of months didn't help my taped calpac last year, and it won't help for my upcoming races.

The deficiency is years old and Felt promised a solution last Spring if I remember correctly. Nothing has ever appeared. Anyone would be nuts to rely on Felt for a solution. They have let down their customers in this.
Its a good bike compromised over very little.

No argument here about those things, it's been a long time coming. Just saying that I saw a version of the new one, and it's better. Like if the one above and the profile design ATTK had a baby, it would be kinda like that. Might even see some uses for the rear bolts and that thing Rinny has on her IA if you look closely.

Mines close, at 51cm... If you were in UK you could use it to test :(
If the CalPac version is available, I'm sure that'll fit... Maybe a little more frame specific for the lower storage, though.

Cervelo P3 stripped and sold and a new B16 Purchased to strip for the frame and swap all the bits over. Force 10 speed converted to 11 speed with nothing more than a new single Shift lever(love that SRAM sell them on there own)

Got a Flo 90 thats now on the rear but i'm finding it doesnt fit right. The Dish of it seems to be too far over to the non drive side compared to the 60. I never noticed it on the P3 as it had adjustable dropouts so you could get it nicely in the middle.

Does anyone else suffer with this?

Preparing for my first race with the IA10. Ironman European championship 70.3. Fit is now dialed, just have to mount the XLAB BTA bottle.

Changed the extensions for Zipp Evo 110, wheels from old bike and ISM PN 1.1 saddle. The grips on my extensions are ESI racers edge hard to get on but nice feel when you're done. I will do the same for base bar but don't want to mess with brake wires at this moment.

Personal best:
Ironman 9:22:02
Ironman 70.3 4:20:00

Cannot remember what direction my flo90 rear was out, but I just had the LBS re-dish the wheel keeping flo's tension specs, and it is all good now. Mine was perfectly out, so with a brake adjustment I used it for my first race, then had it re-dished, so it was setup the right way.

To be honest it was never an issue on the P3 as the adjustable dropouts were just adjusted to centre it and it was nice and square.

Having now had a bit more of a look with google and checked the bike a bit more thoroughly it does appear to also have adjustable ones so i'll be giving them a twiddle and see what it looks like. I need to stick the 60 back in and have a look to see if the rubbing is more to do with the stops being out but the 60 being shallower so it didnt show up or if the 90 is actually needing to be re-dished
