What about BPA?

Anyone know where I can get cheap BPA free water bottles?

Home Bargains, Mountain Warehouse discount bins... I think I've seen them in another of the cheap shops but I forget which - maybe Bargain Buys or TKMaxx. All those discount type stores often sell out, though.

Hi,
TBH never thought about it :?

"The long and short on this whole BPA thing is probably still up in the air. Fortunately, it looks like most of our squishy bike bottles are safe. Depending on your level of paranoia"

Ah.......all my bottles have a number 04 in the triangle on the base...................I am OK :)

Many years ago I remember talking to Colin Lewis in his shop.........he mentioned that only black plastic should be used for water bottles......he said a chemist had told him?

That was forty years ago mind you....
