A few days ago my energy-saver bulb hanging from my room ceiling (made in China) burst as I was fixing it. It struck me then to finish up another of my ideas from long before – to use recycle and make something out of my collection of used bicycle parts collected from my own bikes and nearby bicycle shops.
As the first prototype, I decided to keep things simple for a proof of concept (as well as stress test the ceiling mount in holding the weight). I needed a proper jig or hanger to work with, but laziness led to to use my ladder in experimenting with the mounting and shape. As I hang the old rusty chains, I am pleasantly surprised that it only adds up to 2.5kg.
Here are the components:
Circular Outer Frame: the rim of my rear wheel, which was hit by a careless driver, becoming warped and unusable for riding.
Chain Ring: this came from my very first mountain bike, which was heavily abused through my riding trips and warped as a result.
The second design is currently underway with a friend in the design industry.
Hope you like this project. Please also check out the bicycle chain clock
