Ok, buying a fat bike for under $500 is unheard of. But buying one with an electric motor is insane. And if Sondors have their way, they'll make us all crazy with their Sondors eBike ($499). Besides being the most affordable eBike ever, it offers a powerful 350 W motor, a top speed of 20 mph, and a maximum range of 50 miles. But why a fat bike? Well, that's simple. If you have the power, then why limit where you can go. Their bike features all terrain tires that allow you to handle any environment in any weather condition. This includes taking your bike out in the snow or sand. Check out their Kickstarter campaign today.

The power plant features an ASC built twin-turbo Pontiac 455 with twin turbos. The motor is based on a Butler aluminum block paired with an Eagle forged crank and rods.

We're all looking for that perfect pint of beer. And now you can get it with the NitroBrew ($500). Nirtrobrew is a system that injects nitrogen into your beer while reducing carbonation. It only takes about 1.5 minutes but the results are amazing. Nitrogen bubbles are very small and extremely stable when compared to carbon dioxide, this results in a creamy head of foam, a silky feel on the palate, and a well-rounded flavor.The system contains a small charging station and a beautifully designed kettle. To install just mount the charging station and connect a nitrogen line. The home kit comes with an air compressor, instead of the nitrogen line, to create the nitrogen out of air. Then just fill the kettle with your favorite beer, press the kettle tip into the charging station and in one short step the NitroBrew system reduces the beer's carbonation and energizes it with nitrogen. Swirl the beer in the kettle and serve. That's it.
