Most Awsomest Bike Ever

I love two wheeled machines, motor cycles, bikes......Motorcycles..... But I thought they were about as advanced as I would see in my lifetime.  Maybe the bikes would keep getting lighter and what not but no major life altering advancement right.

Enter the Stealth line of electric bikes.  Usually when you think of a moped badass is the last thing to pop into your mind but that is exactly what the stealth bike is-badass.  They basically took a regular old Big-Hit bike and put a wicked electric motor on it.  But there is the motorcycle as well-no peddles, not a moped-that's right a freakin badass dirt bike that is electric.

Your probably thinking "yea cool for about five minutes until the battery dies", nope; these buggers can crank it for 50 miles and are capable of doing 50 mph.  The acceleration is amazing.  Here in the Philippines the 110-125 cc dual sport motor bikes are the norm and this electric bike has damn near identical specs.  50 mph, 50 miles on a tank of gas, but the electric bike will leave the gas bike in the dust on the 1/4 mile.

There are a lot of little powerful speakers out there now a days for the smart phones but not many that can take a serious beating and come through ok.  The Eco Xpro can take it and more.  Its like a super power wallet for all you valuables.  You may want a man purse though to carry this thing though, but its worth it for the high quality sound and protection.  Think of it as a pelican box with speakers.

Turn your iPhone into a GoPro

Between Samsung and Apple they pretty much have the smart phone thing rockin but nobody is making much in the way of accessories for anything but the iPhone so I have to jump on board the iPhone train.  Not that I will be getting a iPad and losing the Galaxy-no way yo.  Mainly the camera accessories are getting better and better and here is just one of the top players in the biz.  This case is bomb proof and water proof-though not for SCUBA, and on top of it all it has a built in wide angle lens to enhance the range of the iPhones stock camera.  This case comes ready to mount on a tripod or on the go pro mounts on helmets and what not.  Basically it is turning the iPhone into a GoPro and with the solid state hard drive they are running in the iPhone I'd say it can take the abuse.  But as usual be aware of the cheap knock offs, So check it

Crank it Brah

These days there is almost no reason to pay for electricity,  we are ready to go off the grid.  Unless you want to live in an actual house.  With the new Eton Boost Turbine 2000 you never have to worry about charging your usb powered gear-which is about everything these days, while out and about or in the back country.  The Boost has a powerful Lithium Ion battery on board and when its low on power you just whip out the hand crank and wind it up for a few minutes until re-powered.... Easy right.  Check it
