New and naughty lives for old rides
You've ridden, wrenched, and finally thrased her beyond repair, but can't find the heart to banish your retired ride to the landfill - can you still find one more life for your trusy steed?
If you are a designer, mechanic, and cyclist like Andy Gregg, you might turn your bike into a barstool.
Gregg's three combined passions resulted in Bike Furniture Design - sleek, styley pieces made from recycled steel and aluminun bicycle rims, handlebars, and frames. Re-cycling in the truest sense of the word.
Got me wondering about other creative uses for old gear.....there's some cool, and even "racy" stuff out there made from recycled tires.
Like these hip bags,
some DIY tips for craftsters on how to make your own recycled tire sandals,
and these sustainable sex toy paddles from "Burning Rubber".
Can't, um, beat that one for creative re-use.
