    Dude, I have been so amped about using bike parts in art lately. I need to ride down to the LBS and see what they have around. I really want to make a chainring clock and also just find fun ways to use old broken parts.

    they both suck

    Whenever the legislators endeavour to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence - John Locke

    I want to make another version of this stained glass piece that I did about 9 years ago and use a real crank, chainring and chain.

    i refuse to throw away old worn parts for this reason. however, i'm not in the least bit artistic, so they just gather dust. although i like that key holder.
