Celebrate the journey a few pages or pedals can inspire with this charming set of bookends, handmade by Eric Gross from carbon steel and then painted to resemble a cycling silhouette. Handmade in Brooks, Kentucky.

“I try to design items that I would want in my own home or office. I think about things I'd love to have that don't exist and try to breathe life into those concepts.”

Eric Gross grew up on a small family farm, where there always seemed to be some piece of equipment in need of maintenance or repair. He developed the basic skills of metal working from his father and grandfather, spending countless hours in their old white barn, watching them work.

Eric chose to study mechanical engineering in college, hoping to put his knowledge of materials and machinery to good use. He eventually grew bored of designing widgets and decided to use his metalworking skills and equipment to create original, whimsical, and functional items for the home.

      The recipient of this gift will use these bookends in her office. She is an avid bicycle rider and lawyer, and I knew she would enjoy having them on display with her books.

                  I was looking for a special gift for our 11th anniversary made out of steel. After doing internet searches I found this, which I considered perfect as my husband is an avid cyclist and we met in a cycling club. Item once received was just as described and came on time. Looks good on the bookshelf where it has found its home. My husband really likes it too!

                      I purchased the bicycle bookends as a birthday gift for our son-in-law. I'm sure he'll appreciate them; however, I was disappointed especially since I took the reviews into account when deciding to purchase. I was expecting something much heavier and more substantial for the price. I would return them, but there's no time now.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Delivery was prompt, although I paid for expedited delivery to be sure the gift would arrive in time.
