From the misty shores of Maine to the park down the road, you never know where a good book--or bike ride, for that matter--can take you. 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.

I saw this product and just had to order it. This is a functional piece that is so unique in design, I get tons of compliments on it. We use it as a decoration on top of our fireplace mantle, and I can't tell you how often I tell my fiancé "I just love that bike. I am so glad I ordered that!" I am normally a budget shopper, but the price is worth it!

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.

      Bought this as an anniversary present for my avid cyclist hubby. He liked it and I LOVE it in the library. It is substantial - not a small accent. The combination of fashion and function is a hit in our home!

                  He loved them! He is a college student really into road biking. He noticed right away the handlebars were positioned exactly like his. They are something he can keep and use forever. Also that when they were put together they matched perfectly. He kept the bio on the artist.
