Recycled bike chain clock

Amazing clock made from old rear cassette and chain

What to do with an old bicycle? A question we have all asked ourselves at one point or another in our lives, as the sands of time trickle steadily away, leaving only the cold, harsh reality that we really should have spent more time out riding.

Anyway, enough with the existential dread, because with this uplifting piece of bike recycling you can see not only what you should do with an old chain and rear cassette, but you can also then watch the hours slide by with a smile on your face.

You can buy these online, but here’s how Imgur user barmmer did it for themselves.
