Cars can be considered works of art. Boats can be considered works of art. The same goes for planes and trains. Why not bikes? Unless you still fit on the Huffy you took off sweet jumps when you were 10, your bike is probably a work of art. There’s a lot of design, engineering and general tooling that goes into a proper bicycle–too much for it to merely be considered transportation. Put it on display and not only do you get to show it off, you reclaim some much needed floor space. The Bike Valet is one of the simplest solutions for wall mounting a bike and it’s also one of our favorites. No confusing pulleys. No putting sixteen holes in your wall trying to find studs. No engineering degree required for installation. One paper template, two wall lags, one stud and ten minutes later the cold steel display is ready to go.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
