The King of the Bottle Cage


There’s one video clip that I never got around to posting from the 2011 North American Handmade Bicycle Show held in Austin earlier this year.  Ron, from King Cage had a simple little display…but this dude caused quite the stir.

Ron started King Cage in 1991 and began making bottle cages out of Titanium and Stainless Steel in 1996.  What’s the advantages of these types of material for cages?  Well, they are 28 grams and 48 grams, respectively…and they won’t mark up your bottles.  He can also make custom cages, so any of you wanting to get one of those flask holders like that in the Watson Cycles post I did, can now get one of your own.

Here’s a look at Ron’s simple, yet effective process:

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.
