Can anyone recommend a light weight (stainless steel?) thermos flask that fits in to a standard bottle cage (c. 70 mm diameter?), which is robust enough for the under-the-down-tube cage. About 0.5 - 0.7 litres. Standard flask, with screw lid and integrated cup, i.e. don't want to drink while on the move. Just needs to keep water hot enough for a few hours.
I have looked at a few old threads but most links are either dead or products don't seem to exist anymore.
I've just re-read the op's thread. Hoping not to be the devil's advocate, but why not just brew up on the side of the road? Assuming you have space in your panniers.
I'm only saying this because I have only recently learned to 'slow myself down'. I'm a very driven person and in the past I've always tried to do everything as efficiently and quickly as possible. Very tiring on my spirit, my body and those around me.
I'm learning to STOP and take it all in. A Trangia in my panniers along with my coffee, tea and milk makes life much easier.
As my 12 year old says, 'Just saying.'
