Beautiful bicycle wheels

February 8, 2010

I was inspired to make my own mobile out of a bike wheel after seeing one at Revolution Cycles here in Madison. Not only do I think that bike wheels can make great decoration, but I also think they can be very useful.  I built a pot rack out of a wheel by replacing the axle and bearings so that the wheel still rotates while remaining secure in its fitting.   (If you are interested, I am selling it on my Etsy store).

I love this look so much I am inspired to use it as some sort of wedding decor: either as a mobile with pictures or candles hanging from it or as a diy light fixture.
