Custom Electric Chopper Bicycle

I love bikes.  Of course, with a name like Loving the Bike that is pretty obvious.  But I love all kinds of bikes.  Even though I am a road cyclist, I also love coming across cool bikes of all styles and varieties.

So, the other day I was driving in downtown Courtenay and I saw a guy on one of the most unique bikes I’ve ever seen.  I watched him cruising along and then I lost him when he turned off in a different direction.

But the next day I saw the bike parked outside of a local bakery, so I went in to find the owner.  His name was Dan and I told him how incredible I thought his bike was.  I had to get going, but I told him I’d call to have him come by Mudsharks sometime so I could have a better look.

A couple days later, he came to see me and let me check out his custom built electric chopper bike named Kermit.

Dan is super interesting, and I loved hearing him tell me all about how his love for building bikes started…..and more details about the Kermit build.  Oh, and he also let me take it out for a spin as well.  My first time on any kind of electric bike.  Thanks for that, Dan.

I’m not a videographer or editor, but I put this little video together so you hear it all right from Dan.

Enjoy Your Ride

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
