For the Love of the Bike


Just got home from day two of NAHBS and the best way for me to sum things up is that today was a gathering of people who are in it “For the Love of the Bike”.  There really isn’t any other way to describe it.  So many different kinds of cyclists, people, and backgrounds….all coming together because they are Loving the Bike.  What a day, I am so thankful I was able to be a part of all this.

I won’t be going back to the show tomorrow, but I have some more pictures for all you bike porn junkies out there.  Oh, and the photos from today and yesterday are just my amateur shots.  I’ll be posting Chris Gomez’s professional photos in the coming days.  I also have enough video footage and interviews to keep you entertained for days…and will be laying those out in various posts very soon as well.  Watch for the first set coming out on “Make it Happen Monday“.

Even when they are dirty….bikes are just so beautiful to look at

If you thought the flask holder on the Watson bike was cool….you’ll like this as well

Enjoy Your Ride

    I’m with your wife – I love the Naked Bike. Also love those porteur/saddle bags in the background of the 2nd pic (Yipsan) from bottom – any clue who is the maker of those? Definitely lusting…

    Terrific pictures, D – thanks so much for posting!

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.
