View Full Version : New use for dead tire... Clothing!

The other week, I had a blow out, and the tire was completly ruined. I didn't hit anything, and it didn't look like a cut. Whatever the reason, it was beyond booting.

Despite that, it did have two things going for it, a band of reflective material on each sidewall. The tire was ruined, so I started picking at the obvious seam, and much to my surprise it peeled off. So, now I have two strips of fabric backed retro reflective material. I did the only thing I could think of, I glued it to my coat.

I still have quite a bit left over, but I'm looking for more (it'd be great for my winter riding clothes).

Rubberside Down!

Didn't we see this in "Mad Max"?
Post-apocalyptic body armor (http://www.endoftheworldfor.us/content/view/25/35/lang,english/)!

Is it hypocritical to propose a costume/body armor that looks meaner and more violent than a military version HMMWV so as to scare the sheeple in to giving back the road space the took from bikes and pedestrians?:rolleyes:
