I really don't think you need carbs to "absorb" creatine. I just take 5 grams a day in my pre workout because it's easier to remember that way and it has no carbs. Strength and BW still goes up.www.farrisintensitytraining.co m

Why are you loading creatine? I believe the baking soda would act as a pH buffer for the creatine, and that's basically what kre-alklyn consists of. There's no need to take creatine with carbs. If you realllyyyy feel the need to do a loading phase then just split it up in 5g increments.

Taking baking soda with creatine lowers its bioavailability and increases toxic metabolites. So no, don't do it
The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

I've only heard of baking soda as a means for endurance.
I can't imagine I've been taking my mono wrong all these years.
