Default thermos for water bottle cage?

Anyone out there have any suggestions for an insulated coffee thermos that fits standard-sized water bottle cages? I've been told that at one time someone made a thermos that fit their own proprietary cage that bolted onto the frame tub bolt holes. This might work but, first I can't find this and second I'd much prefer something more standard sized.

(Did I just give away a million dollar business idea?)

Thanks,
Dave

Default Vaccuum bottle for Cage

http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/in.../t-145541.html

yours is not as much a shopping question, but rather a thermodynamics and use question. Algebra!
Success depends on, time, distance, air temp, liquid temp etc.
Are you trying to keep liquid hot or cold? What volume in ml? Your belly is an amazing thermos, but does not fit on the handlebars.
I advocate chug'n'go, unless it's ethanol, because drunk riders forfeit their right of way in a most rapid and unsightly fashion.

there is always this guy...

i love coffee. and bikes. and have tattoos to prove both claims. i don't have a thermos that fits snug in a water bottle cage, at least not a cage i have. i do have a thermos that in my opinion lays the competition to waste. the Zojirushi TuffSlim. doesn't leak. keeps coffee hot forever. this is i guess as close to perfect as a thermos can get. my girlfriend bought one after i got mine. hers is bigger. same thing otherwise. Zojirushi also makes the best rice cookers in the world. and they have a cute elephant for their logo.

seriously, zojirushi...

I'm not promoting the shop in the link, but here's your bottle cage specific insulated coffee mug courtesy of Trek. Originally designed for their Soho commuting bike.

I have a 16oz Nissan Insulated travel mug that fits in my water bottle cages. It does a great job of keeping my coffee hot or my iced tea cold in the summer. I have had it for 4 years now and it's still leak-proof. It does rattle a bit against the metal of the cage but a little cloth or electrical tape fixes that if it really starts to get to you.



I purchased mine at Sweet Maria's. Probably a lot of the other coffee sites carry it too. And it looks like Amazon carries it on their website under the Thermos brand.

I posted this query some time ago. Thought it would be helpful to post a follow-up.

Last weekend, wandering new shops in my Alberta Street neighborhood, I discovered the One Stop Sustainability Shop. http://sustainabilitypdx.com/

Here they carry a range of Klean Kanteen products. http://www.kleankanteen.com/

I picked up their large insulated Klean Kanteen and it fits my water bottle cage well.

I recognize that Klean Kanteen stuff is probably everywhere now. This isn't a big new revelation. I just like to help see closure to old threads like this.

Trek included one with their Soho commuter bike.

Klean Kanteen insulated - not going there until they provide a Sport Cap.

I use this:

and a Topeak Modula EX cage (adjustable. inexpensive)
