We’re amazed at the amount of upcycled bike gear we continuously find. It’s like bikes subscribe to some sort of Buddhist rebirth ideology where they die and come back to life in a new form. The latest we stumbled across are these Bike Chain Belt Buckles available from Bike Craft. Each buckle is a TIG welded, powder-coated belt buckle made from reclaimed bicycle chain. The buckles fit most standard belts, are rust and corrosion resistant and are handmade in Portland, Oregon (make sure you pause and collect your breath after recovering from that shocking bit of news).
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
