Unlike beer, these won’t make you fat & drunk … just fat. L.A.-based Batch From Scratch bakers also make a whiskey cookie. Give those a shot, too.
Over the years, Specialized has teamed up with dozens of brands for a variety of bike builds, but this most recent collaboration with McLaren—an institution in F-1 racing and high-end auto performance—tops all the rest. For the absolute best and baddest in lightweight, stiff, and aerodynamic materials, Specialized tapped the dudes at McLaren and the result is a bike that is so crazy light and trick you’ll barely believe it’s UCI-legal.

When you translate “murdered out” into German, it’s something like “ermordet draußen,” which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. Maybe that’s why they named their new, ultra-limited edition M3 coupe the Frozen Black Edition. It’s got a custom satin finish that’s nothing but black—sort of Batmobile-ish and stealthy. Only 20 of these black stallions are coming to America, good luck getting on that list.
Even if your biggest adventures are weekend hikes or after-work jogging in the urban jungle, the Elementum Terra will keep you on track.

A clean, minimalist workspace often means hiding nearby there’s a giant rat’s nest of cables. Or worse, hanging out in plain view. This tricky desktop nixes the nest.
