What to do with an old rim?(11 posts)

What to do with an old rim?Fender
Mar 19, 2003 8:07 AM
I just took apart an old rim that is no longer rideable. Any ideas on what to do with it other than tossing it in the trash?
Donate it, you'd be shocked at what works for someone else. (nm)onespeed

There may be an organization like this near you. They put together and service what we discard as junkers and give them to needy countries.
Cut it up and then practice your aluminum welding technique.(nm)Quack

There is some great sculpture work hanging on some of our local MTB trails.
Use it to stretch out new tubies (nm)speedisgood

Not the best for stretching, but..........MR_GRUMPY

But they are great to store them on. Put them on, and hang them where they won't bump into your head. Old bent tubular rims are the best for stretching.
Some more ideas for you:Kristin
