Maybe a complete bicycle is too much. How about some real love, a rim job. Get your mind outta the gutter, I’m talking a about coat hangers, made from bicycle rims.

I saw this over at Urban Velo.

Velocity Rims, makers of the classic Deep V’s are now taking their rims that don’t pass quality control and selling them as coat hangers, for $8.00. Now that’s not recycling, it’s up-cycling!!

Shimano Gets in the Camera Game: Shimano Sport Camera

Lightweight, mountable cameras have become a cyclist’s best friend these days. A brand synonymous with bikes themselves, it’s no wonder that Shimano is getting in on the camera game. At 86 grams, Shimano’s Sport Camera weighs less than many bike lights–which is good, since it uses an adhesive mount. Waterproof up to 10 meters and sealed to keep out dust and mud, the camera can record for up to two hours in 1080 HD and offers a standard 135-degree and super wide 180-degree mode. WiFi capable, the Sport Camera settings can be controlled through a smartphone, which can also be used to view footage immediately. What that really means is that all your bike exploits caught on camera can be uploaded and shared before you even get home. Available in May for $299; watch footage from the Sport Camera now at www.shimano-sportcamera.com.
