Make Time for Recycling

In 1991, Graham Bergh got a flat tire and used the flat inner tube to hang his stereo speakers. Intrigued with the notion of reviving discarded bicycle parts, he and his artisan friends in Portland, Oregon, started creating functional products from recycled bike parts and other rescued materials. This Hybrid Wall Clock is a prime example - it's made using mirror-like hard discs harvested from discarded computers and combined with bicycle chain rings. It's wall mountable and operates on a single AA battery. You'll get great mileage out of this clock and feel good in knowing that you're doing your part in keeping America litter-free!

Due to the reclaimed nature of the hard discs, the color may vary. We apologize for any inconveinence.

Artist card included.

Graham Bergh

In 1991, Graham Bergh was riding his bike to his recycling job when he got a flat. Being a savvy recycler, he took the inner tube and made a cradle for his stereo speakers. For the next three years, he tinkered with repurposing used bike parts, and in 1994 started Resource Revival.

Every year, this team of bicycle craftsmen collects thousands of pounds of used parts, drawing from bike shops nationwide, and revives them into home accents like bottle openers, frames and clocks.

"We envision a sustainable future where commerce flourishes in a world powered by renewable energy, and where consumers are conscious of the origin of the food they eat, the energy they consume and the products they buy," says Graham. "Buying recycled products 'closes the loop' and helps keep used parts out of landfills." collection

      Comments about HYBRID WALL CLOCK:

      Brought this clock as a going away gift for my bicycle club's past president. He was wowed when he unwrapped the package. The only thing that I was surprised was how new the chainring looked for a part that is supposed to be recycled. I am assuming they clean and polished it prior to turning it into a clock?

        Comments about HYBRID WALL CLOCK:

        The sprocket part of it does NOT seem to be an actual recycled bike sprocket. When I asked cust. service for details, all they could do was read the info already provided on the site.

          My dad is a avid cyclist and really enjoyed the design of this clock. The story of the guy who makes the clock was also neat, so I wanted to share that with my dad. Luckily, the clock came with a card that shared the story behind the clock, so I didn't have to explain it.
          The clock is a little small, but perfect for decoration and seems to work as a functional clock well... it even came with a battery!

                  I purchased this as a gift for my boyfriend because biking and computers are 2 of his interests. The clock I received was all silver, and I feel it is very masculine and stylish. It even came with a battery. He loves it!

                  The clock is pretty neat and my dad loved it. I also think I should mention that I do feel like the price is a little steep for what you get but...that being said, my dad really really liked it so I can still recommend this product based on that. He has not displayed it yet, but it is unique.
