Have you seen IT yet? The GelBot
Here is me loading my gel into the gel chamber (have I told you I LOVE Pineapple Roctane GU!! If you are a follower you have heard me say that several times:) At first I thought this would be a messy process, having to squeeze the gel out of the package and into a bottle?? To my surprise it was super easy and I didn't make ANY messes!! I used two gels to put into the gel chamber and I am not too sure it would have held another full one but maybe a half .
I really meant to prepare my water in the bottle the night before so it would be nice and cold, but did I, NO so I added some ice cubes to the water.(Which made my gel nice and COLD!:) Then I pushed the gel chamber onto the lid and put it into the water bottle.
GelBot work for me? I really liked using it, I liked the convince of having my gel and water all in one step without having to open a gel package and getting it all over me and I had no package to carry until I could find a trash can, I HATE LITTERBUGS!! There is also a hand strap to be able to carry the bottle while running, I however still had trouble with the strap fitting my hand properly and it wasn't very comfortable the first time I used it, the next time I tried to tighten the hand strap a little more it was a little better. I do LOVE the fact of having everything ALL together in one place, CONVINCE :) The only other minor problem I had with the GelBot is getting the gel chamber not to fall down into the water, it took me a couple of times to get it to stay put. I thought it would be hard to get the gel out of the bottle but it was super easy! Overall the GelBot is something I do not use all of the time but I do LOVE using it!
Wanna try a GelBot bottle for yourself?? Your in luck (maybe:) cause its
