When Naço Architecture developed their Tricycle, they asked, “How do you move large loads around a city without using any gas?” What the global firm — which has offices in Paris, Shanghai and Buenos Aires — came up with was the Tricycle, a cargo bike that serves as an alternative to large vehicles, such as buses, electric trams and utility vehicles usually used to move heavy items from one point to another. The environmentally friendly Tricycle enables users to transport things without using any of the quickly depleting fossil fuels.

The Tricycle comes in a modular arrangement, so that you can put the caddy in the front or back of the bike, so that users get to choose which option is the most sensible for the things they need to move. Peddle furniture, clothes you need to donate, refrigerators, a washer — anything that fits in the caddy really, and go back and forth. We’re sure it will be a lot quicker than when Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen were bike movers on that Portlandia skit.

Did we mention? The Naço Tricycle is also a great workout.

While full-bodied cigars do offer robust and unique flavor profiles, it's not always true that they are the most flavorful. If you know where to look, you can find many mellow to medium smokes that are still flavor bombs. A perfect example of this is the . Yes, it's a mild to medium blend, but the flavors are incredible, with a creamy buttery finish. Medium smokes are also what I would recommend to friends, family, and acquaintances who don't like the toasty and smoky flavors of a stronger cigar like a Maduro. Without further ado, here are the best medium cigars I've tried and tested in 2024 and would recommend to everyone else.

Man choosing clothes at his walk-in closet

Like personal finance or basic kitchen skills, organizing your closet isn’t something that gets taught anymore. Now is the perfect time to refresh your drawers and cabinets for a fresh new season. If you’re like most guys, your parents (i.e., your mom) did this for you while you were growing up, sneaking into your bedroom while you were out to collect your sh** from off the floor and put it back into your closet and drawers where it belonged.

Focusing on something you can control — the clutter in your closet — is a rare treat. Organizing your closet is an undeniably good use of free time, and it will make it easier to find items you're looking for.
