Don't move the party inside once the temp drops. The Endless Summer Portable Patio Heater ($300) offers up to a 20 ft. circle of warmth and a super quiet stainless steel burner to keep you and your family cozy. It has a push-button ignition and uses a standard 20-lb propane tank.
At one time or another, we’ve all ended up with dirty duds caused by a greasy bicycle chain. The Outback Chainless Mountain Bike from Dynamic Bicycles ($750) solves that problem by using an internal gear system in the rear axle instead of a chain system. Plus, it sports all kinds of rugged features such as 13” of ground clearance and multiple climbing gears — a bit much for a simple ride to work, but then again so is a Hummer.
Gas powered blender, you ask? Yup — it’s true. The Daiquiri Whacker Gas Powered Blender ($260) features a 25cc Homelite engine, an unbreakable jar, and Zip Start technology. The most manly feature, however, is the handlebar grip speed control which lets you rev it up like a motorcycle. Whacker indeed.
