Via Bike Hacks; Bike Seat Bag Made from Tires and Tubes

Bike Seat Bag Made from Tires and Tubes

Reader Lucas contacted us with yet another use for old tubes and tires.  Take it away Lucas!

I recently finished a seat bag made from innertubes and a tire.   The bag is made from a 26 year old Schwinn road tube, and a much newer (but still old) mountain tire.  It is 100% recycled besides the rivets, webbing, and buckle. Even the zipper is recycled from a backpack.  All in all it took about 3 hours from designing to the last rivet.  I thought you would get a kick out of it and I thought your readers would like it too. Keep on riding.

More detail at the link - the silver rivets give the whole thing a very METAL vibe, ideal for fans of '80s power ballads, like Derek out of off of the Flammecast.
