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.
