Watson Cycles: NAHBS 2011


It’s hard to single out just one of the builders with all the incredible bikes and displays at the NAHBS…but for some reason Watson Cycles caught my eye. They had a super fat tire bike on display that was very sweet, along with a bunch of other custom frames.  The company does an incredible job at blending simplicity and unique personality in each bike and I really dig what they’re doing over there.

I talked to Andrew Watson, the company’s owner and craftsman about how things are going with his company.  I’ve also got a couple shots of his “Fat Tire” as well.

I don’t make many predictions, but in my opinion Watson Cycles is going to be the next big thing in the bike building business.  Keep an eye on them.  For more information, check them out at www.watsoncycles.com.

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.


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.
