    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.

    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.

    But .... a long NNC session and jerkin' the gherkin to some old-school pr0n... not necessarily in that order. Much cheaper than H&B. JustTooBig

    Wait, I have a ton of worn out parts and a camera; and hopefully some artistic talent going for me over all these years --- BRB.

    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."
