At one time or another everyone wanted to get their hands on the classic BMW 328. A few years back BMW put together the BMW 328 Homage ($TBA) and it's still worth taking a look at. The concept is so light, I might actually be able to lift it. It's an amazing 1700 lbs and the loss of weight comes down to the modern materials used for the chassis, which include carbon fiber and reinforced plastic. The vintage kidney grill was inspired by the cars forerunners and the alloy wheels feature a 1930's styling with hints of modern aesthetics. Hopefully if we pay enough attention, they'll actually release this homage some day.

There is nothing worse than cycling somewhere only to find there is nowhere to secure your bike. However, the Linka Smart Bike Lock ($99) gives you an instant and safe solution for keeping your bike safe. A frame-mounted lock that works as a self contained unit with a 9mm hardened square steel ring which can be locked at a push of a button. Plus the built-in 100 dB siren will go off should anyone decide to try and pick your bike up. On your return the Smart Lock picks up the signal from your phone and unlocks the bike for you. But don't worry should you leave your phone at home there is a four digit code that will release your bike instead. As you can see, it's called the Smart Bike Lock for a reason!
