Odd uses for cycling parts
Does anybody else out there use bike parts for uses other than that which they were designed for?
I find that ruined tubular tyres make great chainstay protectors, and blown tubes make good seat-stay wear covers, preventing my panniers from rubbing the paint off on my C'Dale.
Tubasti, despite being a lousy tubular cement, not only holds those aforementioned seatstay protectors on (without plastic-ties), but also keeps handgrips on flat bars from turning! It might also be good for gluing liners into the inside of tyre carcasses, if I were to do that.
I saw a guy once who used old rims as a mobile, hanging from his porch ceiling.
