    I was thinking something like this, only easily removable and custom-fit to work with a CaBi and a Dunkie's medium regulah.

    @Justin - good find... I might give that a try. The cup would have to point inward because of the brake lever, but if the mount can be adjusted to barely slide over the end of the CaBi handlebar, it could then be tightened just enough to work.

    I have a Thermos Urban Elements flip-top vessel that doesn't leak even if tipped over inside a bag. It'll fit within a bottle cage with some rattling, provided it's secured with a rubber band. (Why are these things always narrower than water bottles?) I've done plenty of CaBi trips with the cup inside a bag inside the rack, but never tried securing just it to the rack.

    Most of the time, though, it's not possible to chug hot coffee on the go -- I just fill an insulated water bottle with warm tea and chug that instead.

    Came across this by accident tonight while at Hudson Trail Outfitters:

    Topeak's Java Cage

    It won't help you on the Cabi bikes but it's an option for the caffeine addicted on their own bikes.

    The CaBi is really optimized for carrying bags, and for now I found a messenger bag (similar to this one, with a mesh pocket on the side that is the perfect size to hold a coffee cup. So I buy the coffee, strap the bag securely into the CaBi basket, then insert my coffee cup into the mesh pocket. It's held pretty securely and stays as level as the bike, as long as the bag is adequately strapped in. Since accessibility while riding isn't the point for me, this seems to work.

    Here's another idea. Not necessarily for CaBi specifically though might work. http://t.co/bdmDh5yv

    i have an insulated, leakproof contigo coffee cup that I got at target. I don't ride a CaBi. I take my home brewed coffee with me on my 12 mile commute in my pannier side pocket. The coffee is still hot when I get to work and I've never had a spill. Here's a link so you can look at the products: http://www.gocontigo.com/travel-mugs.html

    I have a little half-sized thermos that holds a little more than a cup and never leaks. Usually I put it in my backpack, but you could probably strap it in the holder. I'm still waiting for custom bags designed just for Bixi racks. I suppose when NYC has them, they'll start to pop up.

    Thanks, I ordered one -- it would be great to have a travel mug that doesn't leak. Better to get it at Target, though, the shipping is half as much as the mug online.

    Hope it works out for you. Remember to clean the lid carefully - I use a bottle brush. There are some lovely nooks and crannies where things can germinate and solidify. Not so much fun when you're looking forward to a nice cup of coffee and you get something solid...
