On the Road Again

Retired bike gear get a second life in this quality-crafted, buckle-and-belt duo. Handmade of recycled bike chains, Trent Stocking's industrial, stacked buckle gives this sleek bike inner tube belt an edgy focal point. The inner tube's surface still possesses the stretch and durability necessary for a life on the road, but it also has the suppleness of a classic, leather belt, adding a bit of street style to your ensemble whenever you cinch up your pants. Made in Seattle, Washington, and Portland, Oregon.

Small (waist size 24-28 inches)
Medium (waist size 28-32 inches)
Large (waist size 32-36 inches)

Buckle is removable and interchangeable with other belt straps.

  • the maker

Trent Stocking

Trent Stocking has been working metal since he was 15. His dad owns a dental lab in Michigan and gave Trent a job as a Metal Finisher. He polished gold crowns and drew anatomy into metal teeth. Trent learned the value of the dexterity his two hands possessed.

He was taught to work hard, keep his head down, focus on the fine detail and to be proud of his work. After working with his dad for approximately five years, he moved on to work at the Alchemist Sculpture Foundry where he worked on ten foot statues of sports figures for baseball stadiums and hockey arenas. As time passed, Trent was a bike mechanic, barista, and doughnut maker. He began to realize that he needed to get back to his roots - Metal. Cutting, grinding, sanding, welding and repeat. Trent notes that "it's hard work, but the product you get to hold in your hand when it is finished is monumental every time." collection

              I bought this for my husband for our wedding anniversary. He loved it! He loves all things mountain bike and was very excited that it was a re-purposed chain and tire. It did, however, run small. I read that in previous reviews so although I would have bought the medium, I bought the large instead and it fit perfectly. He wears a 34" waist in pants.

                He wore it to a job interview, and it looked great with denim and a dressy shirt. Interview was with a bike shop, and he got the job.

                Great idea for the bike enthusiast, but too small for an average adult.

                  Great belt but my husband wears a 32 so ordered a Small which should be a 30-36. Can't even get the belt to touch ends on my 26" waist! Still have another 4-1/2" to go to reach the first hole.
