If you gave us a blank check (encouraged) we would quickly amass a garage full of bikes that would make Jay Leno’s car collection look like a pathetic pile of junk.  Until that happens we’ll settle for flipping through Cyclepedia:  A Tour of Iconic Bicycle Designs like we were in 7th grade and someone handed us a Hustler.  Michael Embacher’s book showcases amazing two-wheeled rides from the last 90 years.  No big deal that we’d be hard-pressed to pick one style we favor over another since Cyclepedia’s got plenty of bike designs covered from simple classic racers to modern, somewhat bizarre rides like ones created to carve up ice paths.  In layman’s terms, it’s 224 pages of bike porn.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
