Testing with the Aerotune method allows you to just try out whatever is on your mind whenever you want it. I did these two different tests just to give an example of that possibility.

Since I already tested with standard bottles and aero bottles I was curious to find out what would happen if I would mix this. Since the trend I received in my first bottle test was that the standard bottle on the seat tube was better than on the down tube and the aero bottle on the down tube did not impact as much as the standard bottle. I tested that combination in comparison with no bottles.

The result can be seen here:


Mixing the bottles saved 19 watts compared to the two standard bottles.

Secondly I wanted to test if sticking the bottle in the back pocket of my jersey would stay neutral. Yes, I know it might not be the most comfortable thing to do, but the idea behind that was to find out how I could maybe save some time in the endgame if the bottle is empty.

The result can be seen here:


As you can see, there is no difference.

To sum it up, I think I found two possibilities to further optimize my setup.

This concludes what I did with bottles. Next week I‘ll have a look at helmets.

Stay aero and be part of the #aeroCOMMUNITY.
