    Old Chains

    Just changed out my chain on my road bike and just wondering what you all do with your old chains. Are there any good uses besides spares?

    Thanks

    You could make two chainwhips. You would be able to remove the cogs from you freewheels to clean or make custom gearing.

    Clean it up and use it garland on a small Christmas (or Festivus) tree.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    hang it in your basement for eternity but do tape a note to it so that you don't forget what it is and where it came from ...
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
