Don't Tread on Me

Don't fool around when it comes to keeping your pants up. These belts are handmade in Portland, Oregon from recycled bicycle rubber tires, and each one is strong enough to cinch you in for years to come. Each belt is made from a different tire, so each one has a distinct pattern to its tread, even showing different levels of wear. Buckle is nickel-plated steel.

You asked and we listened! The bike tread belts are now available in road or hybrid bicycle treads. The road bike tread belts will have a more subtle tread pattern. The hybrid bike tread belts will have a raised tread with a more textured look.

Julien Jaborska got the idea to transform used bicycle tires into belts after working in bike shops for a few years and witnessing the heaps of trash generated by replacing worn and broken parts.

He decided to take some tires home and experiment, and came up with the first belt, which he kept for himself. After some friendly encouragement, he made a few more.

"I put some up for sale on that wonderful creation we call the internet, and the next thing I knew, orders were rolling in," he says.

Julien moved to Portland, Oregon, a city that he calls "the mecca of biking, recycling, handmade [and] weird," where he launched Rebicyclist as a full-time business.

He says that thanks to the support of those that buy his belts he is "living the dream, making cool things and riding bikes."

      Comments about Bike Tread Belt:

      I ordered this belt as a gift, thinking it was from a fat tire/mountain bike--as the picture shows. However, when I finally received it, it is definitely from a road bike. The recipient still liked it but it looks a bit girly for a guy's belt. [...]

          Comments about Bike Tread Belt:

          The description says that the tread pattern is different on each belt, but the one I received has no tread at all. It's extremely thin and flimsy. Imagine a bike tire tube with no tread and a belt buckle attached. A disappointment.

          The belt made of an automobile seat belt, however, is great.
