    I am torn on how to rate this. I collect unique Christmas ornaments and in the photo I just loved it. My husband is a cyclist and I liked the idea of using cycling parts. But it is so small, it is lost on the tree. I am glad I got red or you wouldn't see it at all. Another link added to each side would make a huge difference. If you have a small tree, it would be great. It is good quality and craftsmanship.

        I bought this ornament for my brother who does mountain biking. He really liked it and was surprised by its uniqueness. It is smaller than I thought it would be but it is beautiful and well made.

        I started my nephew's Christmas ornament collection on his first Christmas. Now that he's a teenager on the US cycling team, this will be the perfect ornament to add to his collection this year!

          It's just a great way to recycle! The ornament looks nice on the Christmas tree, and it could be used as a key chain or, with a longer piece of leather or inner tube, as a pendant on a necklace. We'll be showing this to 50+ members of a local cyclists club in the spring. 'Hope you're ready for more orders.

            The ornament is so clever, perfect for any avid cyclist on your list. It is a little more rustic looking in person than in the photo, but I think that added to its charm. It made it look like a well-loved bit of cycling equipment. The color (I bought it in red) is still vibrant and pretty on the tree.

              Always looking for unique cycling items for my adult son.
              This was a great find as it is recycled and biking all in one.
              Love it!

                This met our need of a gift for many in remeberence of our son. He was killed in a freak accident at work this summer 2012. With all the tricks and styles of biking he did he was never injured.Back flips and all. This bike chain hanging in Green (his favorite color) with a re-used tire as a hanger/lanyard (meeting his "use it and use it again lifestyle") is a perfect token to give our family and friends this year.
                Thank you
                From Us and all our Family & Friends

                  I bought this for my husband as a surprise gift when we decorated our tree this year. He loved it. It is very funky and cool. Great for my husband who is an avid mountain biker. It looks great on the tree and he says he will hang it in his office when the holidays are over. Great for bikers, mechanics or anyone looking for an unusual or "repurposed" ornament.

                    A simple bicycle chain. I hadn't thought about a bicycle chain in a long time. Had alot of good times riding my bike with my best friend as a child. Thought she would like a reminder of a simple chain to remember the times of our youth. The color green because she got her new cool green paisley print bell bottoms caught in a bicycle chain. Good idea to recycle the long forgotton bicycle chain.
