In The Loop

Handmade by Matt and Jill Meyer from recycled hybrid bike tires, each of these one-of-a-kind belts has a distinct tread pattern, an edgy, road-tested patina, and an actual bike chain buckle, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase "what goes around comes around." The buckle is naturally bendable, but offers enough rigidity to keep your pants securely in place.
Handmade in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Small (waist size 27-33 inches)
Medium (waist size 31-37 inches)
Large (waist size 35-41 inches)

Tired of his pants falling down while he biked around the city and even more tired of the boring old belts in his drawer, Matthew Meyer decided to take matters into his own hands. He'd seen a few similar belts on the market, but not exactly what he was looking for. So, after much tinkering around in the garage and taking on his wife, Jill as his creative partner (also his main employee and worker bee), their "waste to waist" upcycled belt business was born. All belts are unique and hand crafted, made from recycled bicycle parts, and 100% vegan.

Notes
The road bike tread belts are between 1" and 1.25" wide, and they tend to have a more subtle tread pattern.
The hybrid bike tread belts are between 1" and 1.50" wide, and tend to have a raised tread with a more textured look.

Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Bike Tread Belts:

The idea of the product was great. It was too small for my brother and too funky for him. The buckle was a little challenging to fit at first. The belt was also a bit bulky because of the tire tred. I would be more selective in who I buy this for, if I bought it again - it would definitely have to a be a cyclist who is trendy.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Bike Tread Belts:

      My only complaint is that because the surface of this belt has typical tire traction it was cumbersome to feed it through the belt loops of my son's pants. The upside to that is, once adjusted this belt doesn't move. Very helpful on a very active boy. He loves it and I'm happy.

            Adorable and great for my geeky biker riding husband. Only issue is that it isn't the strongest to keep his pants up but he's still happy to wear it.
