    Low Carb beers..... and such

    Okay I'm far from a nutrionalist or a rocket scientist and the last thing that I kind of remember about protien, carbs and fat are what each gram equals in calories... I think.. it's 4 cals for each gram of protien and carb, and 9 for fat.

    So if a Michelob Ultra is 95 calories, and it has 5 carbs, 1 protien and 0 fat that would be about 24 cals. Where the FUQ is the other calories coming from????

    Now today on the radio I heard a Smirnoff Vodka commercial claiming O carbs.... so I can drink it like water????? Sweet!!

    All light beer is low carb. The calories come from the alcohol.

    When they say 0 or negative calories, it is because your system spend more energy digesting its content than the actual amount of calories in the product.

    alcohol has 7 cals/gram . personally, id rather have the carb cals cus alcoholic calories are empty and your body cant mobilize them like it can with carbs...

    The Clydesdales drink Budweiser n piss out all that other crap. You need some carbs or your brain will cease to function properly. If you want a beer have a good one, just balance it or them with something physical n fun. A bike you actually have to pedal maybe.

    you don't get what you wish for ~ you get what you work for

    No I am buff n sexy n ride a motobecane it knows my crotch betta then most men n keeps my skin on, knows when my eyes say oh shit turn before my hands do . she is 2" taller at the crotch than out of a rack n has moosehead handlebars saweet.
    Motobecane le Champion Team
    A budget racer backed with a solid frame and quality components.
    By Sean Coffey


    Price: $1,750
    Buy It If: You want the best you can get, especially when it comes to components.
    Forget It If: You want the bragging rights of a high-zoot frame and would settle for second-tier Ultegra or even 105 to get it.

    This budget racer has a quality frame, but we're really excited about the component group--getting a complete Dura-Ace-equipped bike at this price is almost unheard of. Usually, you'd buy a bike for the solid frame, knowing you could upgrade the components later. But Motobecane didn't skimp on the frame, either. It's a Kinesis-built unit (Kinesis welds for a variety of big-name bike companies) with an integrated headset and carbon fork that mimics the setups raced by top pros, and a few other nice touches such as down tube-mounted barrel adjusters and a sleek little seat clamp. The fat, shaped aluminum tubes are made of top-of-the-line Kinesium, which promises more strength and durability over garden-variety 6000-series aluminum, allowing for a claimed frame weight of 2.8 pounds. Add top-shelf Dura-Ace, and you've got a machine that performs as well as bikes costing twice as much. It's quite a deal. All this bike lacks is the flashy paint, big-name bragging rights and some of the ride refinement you'll find on more expensive frames.

    7 Words About This Bike: Light. Stiff. Nimble. Affordable Dura-Ace. Legendary name.
    Frame: TIG-welded Kinesium aluminum w/replaceable derailleur hanger and integrated headset.
    Weight: 17lbs. (54cm)
    Sizes: 50, 52, 54 (tested), 56, 58, 60cm
    Fork: Kinesis Integra carbon fiber.
    Component Highlights: 18-speed Shimano Dura-Ace group. 53/39 chainrings, 11-219-speed cassette, Dura-Ace brakes, shifters, crankset, front and rear derailleurs, hubs; Alex EST14 AeroLite rims; M-Wing Team Issue bar, stem; Kenda KontenderLite 700x23c tires
    my bike is custom tall so my seat isn't jacked up my ass and my handlebars are way cooler
