    I still somewhat question a fatbike for a starter bike. I think much of this depends on fitness levels, the type of terrain available to your wife, and most importantly, who she'll be riding with (if...

    Best bottles out there if you ask me. In fact, all Klean Kanteen stuff is awesome. Such a good product, I'm suspect of anyone who doesn't like them.
