Over in the Tech New section, James Huang writes about a bearing upgrade for the Klein Palomino and a new bottle from Camelbak:

From the company that brought you the "Unbottle" comes… a bottle! Camelbak's new bottle integrates its Big Bite Valve into a handy flip-top which is then connected to a convenient hose that ensures you can get the last drop of liquid sitting at the bottom. Thankfully, all of the associated little bits are easily detached for dishwasher-safe cleaning. Polycarbonate construction promises good durability for the inevitable impromptu "drop test" and should keep contained liquids from tasting like plastic. In a clever touch, the top also uses industry-standard Nalgene threading which not only means cross-compatibilty with their bottles but also with Nalgene-compatible filters and other accessories. Bottles are currently only available in a 0.75l size but are offered in nine different colours, including the currently requisite pink. Half-litre and full litre sizes will be available in late fall. MSRP is US$10, US$12, and $14 for the 0.5l, 0.75l, and 1l sizes, respectively. Sip away.
