Subject: Installing the Aero Drink Bracket
I just bought the aero drink bottle and bracket but the instructions are really hard to read and are about as clear as mud. There's lots of talk about velcro but it isn't clear to me what is used where. Can someone help to illuminate the process for me? Thanks!

Wrap the velco on your aero bars where the bracket will rest. Place the bracket and zipp tie the bracket in place.

Be sure there is room for the bottle before you install the bracket. Make sure there is room behind and below the bottle for clearance.

Never mind.  I didn't read your post completely.  I now just use the bottle with no bracket.  I use foam beteen the bottle and bar and the rubber straps that came with the bolttle.  I didn't like the bracket.  The foam helps keep the bottle from rattling.

Oh sweet idea!!  I might have to try it.  Never any issues with the bottle or foam slipping out?  Not really a fan of the bracket but didn't have a choice....until now!

No it works great.  The foam I use is black, about 3/8-1/2" thick and has adheasive on one side.  It sticks really well.  You can pick up the foam from either the home improvement store or maybe even a craft store.  I stick it to the bottle so I don't have anything on my bars when it's removed.

I'd post some pictures but I'm away on vacation...

I don't use the velcro either.  I just wrap some old tubing around the aerobar where the bottle sits to reduce the vibration.  It works pretty good, too.

Also......you might want to ditch the yellow mesh dohicky and switch to a small soap pouf.  The pouf stays in the bottle much better than the stupid yellow thing.

The newest version of the bottle has a snap-on top. It still comes with the yellow thingy

Cool!!!  I wonder if mine will mysteriously disappear and need to be replaced?

I can get a pic of my install if you want but just thought I'd chime in to agree on how useless the profile designs instructions are. They are basically worthless.

I got some additional instructions/clarifications from Profile Designs so I don't think I'll need your pictures but thanks.
