According to the Oxford English Dictionary the word the word Barbeque is traced back to Haiti, that translates as "a "framework of sticks set upon posts". Well over the years those posts have been transformed into some great looking pieces of equipment and those sticks have turned into skewers. And below we present to you some great looking pieces of equipment. Enjoy!
Did you know that over 16.2 million bikes were sold in the United States in 2013? That is the number reported by the National Bicycle Dealers Associated. And it probably doesn't come as a surprize that 95% of those bicycles are fabricated, painted, and assembled in foreign countries such as Taiwan and China. That translates to almost 5.8 BILLION American dollars exported out of the United States for bicycles. That is a big number.
However, there are a number of bicycle companies in American trying to change those stats and we highlight two of them below - Durango Bike Company and Firefly Bicycles - who are making a difference one bike at a time. Click on the images below to get a more detailed look at the companies and their products.
