    Just an hour ago I used a section of inner tube to open a resistant jar of strawberry preserves. I immediately thought of this forum but decided it was not worthy of posting. So I was delighted to find this thread resuscitated.

    P. S. Do not attempt this with an inner tube still in the tire. You might get strawberry preserves in the tire. They would probably seal small punctures but cannot be depended on as sealant; besides, they are the wrong color.

    I've seen old rims made into pot hangers with a little light chain and some hooks, it worked quite well.

    Old rims can be made into chairs as well, nylon cord, strung like tennis rackets for seat and back, and legs of rims, cut in half.

    Ride in your mind

    Pieces of old tyres make great exhaust pipe hangars.

    I am drawing a blank, except for the fact that, if I think in reverse,
    I have a number of examples of "Odd uses for non-cycling parts on my bicycle."

    1) Handgrips from a Swedish-made walker (shaped like squids.)

    2) Reflectors from:
    a) auto supply stores
    b) home depot

    3) miscellaneous metal brackets, also from home depot

    4) batteries and chargers from Radio Shack

    5) zip ties from the dollar store

    6) unknown filing cabinet parts

    7) CO2 cartridges from mart for bb-guns

    8) whistle

    9) whatever-whatnots, etc., as I find them useful

    10) roasting rack not included
    No worries
