Some things you just can't leave behind.... 

Montegue Bikes

The Paratrooper is one of the many folding mountain bikes that Montague offers. Its patented folding design was developed to allow airborne soldiers to drop out of airplanes and helicopters and into combat. The Paratrooper offers advanced features with 24 speeds and front and rear mechanical disc brakes. Known for its durability and load bearing capabilities, this folding bike has also developed a following with everyday commuters and weekend warriors.
Clever integration of the patented CLIX System allows for the Paratrooper to be folded in under 20 seconds without the use of tools. A flip of the CLIX quick release lever on the top tube and the bike folds to a compact size.
The Paratrooper frame is designed around a patented folding system. This design eliminates the need to break the frame in order to fold the bike. Not only does this make folding easier but it makes this bike the strongest folding bike on the market. The Folding Integrated Technology (F.I.T.) is based around frame construction concepts designed for serious full suspension downhill bikes.

Besides looking rally cool, these bikes are really fun to ride and therefore are given the Dave and Dimples Seal of Approval.

The Jura ENA 9

One of our pleasures is great coffee, not just in the morning but espressos in the afternoon or a shot poured over gelato for a great dessert.  To downsize we sold our Jura Impressa and got the ENA 9. which according to the Jura folks is: 
The slimmest One Touch automatic speciality coffee machine from JURA serves latte macchiato and cappuccino at the touch of a button and is perfectly suited to small but discerning homes. (And Dimples is one exceptionally small and discerning home!!!)

Clearly arranged buttons make the task of preparing specialities ultra easy.
For the first time in a household machine, the ENA 9 One Touch features a height-adjustable dual spout which adjusts to any height between 75 mm and 125 mm (3 and 5 inch).
  • Latte macchiato and cappuccino at the touch of a button
  • Fine foam technology 
  • Height-adjustable dual spout, Cappuccino / Coffee (75 - 125 mm / 3 and 5 inch)
  • Aroma Boost for extra coffee kick
  • 6 different products at the touch of a button
  • Just 23.8 cm (9 inches) wide
  • Double coat of metallic-look glossy silver lacquer
To meet the challenge of transport, I created a quilted case that protects the machine. It fits in the shower while we are on the road.
