    Gilded Age: Stockinger, Bentley team up, create a safe specifically for watches

    I’m gonna hazard a guess here and say that if you’re *so* into watches that you need a specific safe for them, you’re probably in a different tax bracket than all of us here. That is, unless your name is John Biggs and you collect watches in order to fill some weird void in your soul. Fair enough. Be that as it may, perhaps you’re so drained from all the G1 coverage… Read More

    Wow. I’m completely speechless right now. Our very own Editor-in-chief John Biggs has himself a real book deal.

  • Pearl Izumi bicycle shorts with built-in MP3 player helps fight Parkinson's

    [photopress:jbshorts.jpg,full,center] Dear John Biggs, This pair of Pearl Izumi Microsensor Bib Shorts reminds me of you. I don’t know what it is about them. Maybe it’s the form-fitting Spandex, maybe it’s the straps that remind me of that thing you wore that one time, who knows. I shouldn’t have brought that up, I know. What I do know, however, is that it has a… Read More
