Do you guy's have a cup holder mounted to your handlebars?
I saw this one and it looked nice.

I have this one: http://www.somafab.com/morningrush.html

The cup that comes with it is not great because it doesn't seal tight, which means it splashes out through the lid on small bumps. But I bought a $3 steel mug from Walgreen's that works just fine.
Note: The link in the OP goes to a website with possibly nsfw images and annoying sound.

I have a handlebar mounted water bottle cage that I got for cheap a few years ago at Uptown bikes. It's nothing special, but I definitely get comments on it when I bring that bike out.

On my road bike, I have two water bottle cages and I find that my upright cage will carry a cup just fine...it's only when going over bumps that I'll sometimes get something splashed on my leg.
Since I like to pick up a cup of coffee to take to work, I thought about getting a handlebar cup holder (lloked at afew) but decided that since I'm really not going to be drinking on the way to work I'd rather get an insulated water bottle that fits in amy bottle cafe (adjustable type). Found a wide mouth stainless steel insulated bottle at Kleen kanteen. It came with an insulated lid and I bought another lid (which I keep at work) which converts it to a drinking bottle (like the kind on insulated mugs). Link below

I also have the Soma cup holder. My experience has been the same as Brendan's - it splashes through the lid, especially with all the potholes around here. In the winter it was worth the hassle to have hot coffee, but I haven't used it since the weather's gotten warmer. More info about my experience with the mug here.
Well.. you gotta find Ignacio!!! haha!
Go to link, click on gallery. Look at the picture of the free Kroozie winner in Chicago. Awesome.
Here's my set up, works great. I use a different mug though, not the original. It's by Soma Fab.

The Soma is OK, but the Singleworks holder has a better clamp design and is 75% cheaper. Several shops in the city stock them.

The link you made didn't work, but I recognize the name and your photo and I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your blog.
