Kickstands are so fourth grade. You don’t spend upwards of hundreds – if not thousands – of dollars on a sweet new bike and not shell out for some way to display it. You could hand it on the wall, ceiling, or somewhere in the garage using some crazy Rube Goldberg sort of contraption, but that’s a lot of time and effort that could be spent riding. The Clankworks Pinch Stand is a simple – yet very effective – way to not only vertically secure your bike, but display it for everyone that passes through. The two bamboo spring slats are secured with aluminum hardware and use the weight of your bike to firmly lock the rear wheel in place. When you’re ready to take it to the mean streets, all you have to do is lift your bike out of the adjustable pinch and you’re ready to go.

 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.
