In our store we always have lots of old bike parts which have been removed from donated and preloved bikes. We keep them for spares but are always looking for cool new ideas in how to recycle them and use them for alternative purposes. We have plans on using some of them to create murals and pieces of artwork for decoration in store, hopefully involving some local children to help with these projects through the summer months.
I came across this video which has lots of images of how old bike parts have been recycled to give them a new lease of life. Its very interesting, there are some very clever ideas and it has inspired me to start making the most of old bike parts to create new upcycyled products and features for our store. Check the video out, let us know what you think and if you have any other ideas which are not included in the video. Enjoy.
