    prayer cog

    i just went down to condor cycles in my lunch break today to pick up a cog and score some information about what parts they have. on the way back i popped the cog out of the bag and held it with my first two fingers through the cog and my thumb on the teeth, i then pushed it roungd tooth by tooth as i walked along. i think it was just the exitement of a new part for my project that made me play with it on the way back but then i got to thinking..... what about instead of prayer beads and rosaries (sp) people used cogs to cycle through their prayers, or bicycle riders could use them for their own prayers/mantras like 'i hope i don't go down today' etc. its silly but today i'm feeling silly and stupid and bored.
    well here's the blog

    It's more normal to use a chain for this....

    I found Condor Cycles for the first time at the weekend - what a great store. It was most pleaseing to find a set of Dura Ace SPD-R pedals in the second-hand bin for £25. This is the finishing touch for my new bike project.

    Cheers,

    Ed
    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    The bike equivalent of a Bhuddist prayer wheel? Neat idea. "om mane padme hom" is seventeen characters including spaces, so if you bought a 17t sprocket, you could write one character on each tooth and reach enlightenment as you ride!

    when i went to college in eugene, oregon, i worked at a bar and a market. there was this guy who called himself the "fidget guy" who made these gadgets out of three links of chain and a keyring. i'll try and find one to post a picture. he was always bringing in new designs to trade me for packs of smokes at the store. anyone know if he's still around the campus area?

    A non-cyclist friend of mine here in Chicago has one of these keyrings, just as you describe. I can't remember where he got it, I think he found it in the video store he works at. How curious!
