coffee cup for your bike

I came across a bike blog that is part product review and part DIY modification. The recommendation is for the OXO Good Grips Liquiseal Travel Mug. The benefits are
a. it's cheap ($10)
b. easy to find (Linens 'N Things)
c. fits in a bottle holder
d. doesn't leak
Finding a cup that is leak-proof is harder than I had expected. I haven't used this one, but if it works, it's worth the money.
This rider also added extra insulation to the cup by wrapping it with a layer of cork handlebar tape covered by a layer of duct tape. This has the added benefits of reducing the tapered shape to fit the bottle holder better and making the cup more “grippy”. All in all a good tip for those who combine their morning ride and morning coffee.
