If you follow F-1 racing, you know the season kicked off last week in Australia. Right now they’re racing in China, and next week it’s Turkey.

Four satellite speakers and a 200-watt bass sub guarantee a rich, 360-degree sound experience.
Nope, no powertools needed here. Because you don’t really screw with these; you just push them in gently. They’re thumbtacks, what else can we say?
Beer & bicycles go together like peanut butter & jelly. That’s why this seat-mounted bottle opener is so unquestionably genius. Think about it: ride to store, get sixer of Microbrews, ride away. But then, you get to the park or the beach and … start looking for something to pry the lids open? That’s lame. Mount this handmade, stainless steel opener under your seat and be prepared everywhere you roll.
We all want long balls, right? The new RAZR Hawk driver from Callaway will supposedly make this dream come true. We say “supposedly” because there is, of course, the human element (your swing). But with forged composite technology, the sweet spot just got a lot bigger & easier to find.
