Venom 2017 Pro Mini BMX
The best bit about being a kid was having a bike: specifically, a BMX.
Cycling as a grown-up can be great too, but the two-wheeled scene these days can seem so serious when you compare it with memories of pulling skids, wheelies and generally hooning about for the hell of it.
Venom understands this, and its mini-bike series is designed specifically for fun. You don’t need a spec sheet: it’s a BMX, just as you remember them, only smaller.
Reliving (or continuing to live) your youth will cost about £160. Finally nailing a bunnyhop in the park a mere decade or three after first attempting one: priceless.
Television sets must be feeling somewhat unloved of late.
The scooter’s evolution has followed a curious path, from harmless kids’ toy to infuriating urbanites’ gizmo, via a ‘rad’ teenage phase as a clumsier version of a skateboard.
While anyone who has ever been camping in the UK may disagree, the sun is a reliable and totally free source of energy.
