Bikes: The upcycled life

by Josh Kimball

This would be FAR better as a sort of infographic with a kind of broish dude (probably with a beard?) wearing all of this recycled bike gear and little callouts pointing to all the upcycled stuff he has on. But my skills are not up to the task.

SO, what follows is as complete a head-to-toe recycled (re-bike-led?) life as I am currently able to create:

Feet:
Sandals made from bike tires.

Ass:
Wallets made from bike tires.
Chairs made from bike tires.

Torso:
Jackets made from bike tires.
Belts made from bike tires.
Dresses made of bike tires (not currently available through retail channels).

Home decor:
Fences made from bike frames (this one is probably my favorite).
Shelves made from innertubes.
Stools made out of bike tires.
Rugs made from bike tires.
Chandeliers made out of bike parts.
Clocks made out of chain rings.
Christmas trees made of recycled bikes (you can’t really fit it in your home).
Menorahs made out of bike chains.
Bowls made out of bike chains.
Picture frames made out of bike chains.
Coat hooks made out of bike chains.

Accessories:
Necklaces made from bike innertubes.

Bracelets made from bike tires.

Weapons:
A small catapult made completely out of bike parts.

Musical instruments:

Guitar straps made from bike tires.

Sporting goods:
Ski ties made from bike tires.

Office supplies:
