Go Titanium With Charge Bikes

If you want a top of the line bike, go for Charge’s titanium bikes. If you’re not familiar with Charge, it’s a “UK based bicycle brand that designs practical, stylish and refined bikes for the everyday cyclist. Our aim is to make the buying process simpler for beginner and intermediate cyclists.” Why titanium? The benefits of titanium alone should be able to convince you to purchase one. Titanium isn’t corrosive, unlike its metallic doppelganger steel, so it won’t rust. Titanium is also more flexible than other materials, so it’s a better shock absorber than carbon. You can get a Charge Titanium bike in one of three styles: the Cooker, the Plug and the Grater. Here’s how the British bicycle company breaks it down:

Cooker Titanium: The Cooker Titanium adventure range is designed around 27Plus wheels, which blends the performance and speed of 29. The Titanium offering, known as the Cooker 5, ranges from $2,999.99 to $4,499.99

Plug Titanium: The Plug Titanium range uses all-road geometry and fast rolling, large volumes tires that provide comfort, confidence and inspiring grip. The Titanium offering – $2,499.99 to $3,999.99

Grater Titanium: Double butted titanium frame, lightweight carbon disc fork and tough, urban wheel seat. Continental City Ride tires – $3,499.99

Next time you’re in the market for a new bike, go titanium. It’s lightweight, so you can speed through the city or the hills with ease. Plus, you don’t have to worry about the rain and snow causing it to rust.

Why You Should Upgrade to the Bundle Instead of Going for ESPN+
Trio of logos for the Disney plus bundle that includes Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu.

If you're looking forward to the next big UFC event and are hunting around for the best way to watch it online, you've probably realized already that you'll need to sign up for ESPN+. But if you've already got your credit card ready, pump the brakes a bit: The Disney Bundle is a much better value, and it includes ESPN+. Here's why you should consider upgrading to the bundle instead.

Don't get us wrong: We love ESPN+. It's a must-have for all sports fans, and it's the go-to platform if you want to live stream UFC fights, as ESPN+ is the only place where you can watch UFC pay-per-view events live. But for the money, the Disney Bundle -- which includes ESPN+, mind you -- is simply the better value than paying for ESPN's premium streaming platform by itself, and it's not even close.
