Bicycle Chainring Clock

Not available for purchase.

193 votes 22 comments

The chainring is, in many ways, the beating heart of your bike. With some inspired repurposing, Pittsburgh artist and bicycle enthusiast Amy Garbark keeps them ticking as attractive wall clocks. Reclaiming these components to create functional decor is beautifully in tune with the eco-conscious ethos of contemporary cycling, and immortalizing the pivotal parts of retired bikes is a fitting tribute to our trusty steeds.

Each clock is ultimately one-of-a-kind due to the natural and reclaimed materials. Made in the USA
wood, water-based stain, clock mechanism, bicycle chainring, nuts, bolts
8.5" dia. x 1.5" H

We're always on the lookout for bike-inspired goods, so Melissa hit the brakes to take a closer look when she saw the Bicycle Chainring clock. Check out the product story to learn more about the reclaimed materials, then let us know if this design has your vote.

Not a big fan of the apparent bicycle subculture, and way too many items about bicycles to sift through. Unless this is a NY trend, I don't get it. It's not even close to being a big thing in Chicago. Not hating, just don't see the allure

I need numbers or some sort of number representation on a clock to make it actually useful (and not just cool looking).

Not cute. Hard to read. Too brown. Looks as though it is missing something....too plain. Thumbs down.

Darn, I'm bummed to see this isn't available. Missed opportunity! Hopefully it will come back as a buyable product.
