Austrian designer Andreas Scheiger has a fetish for cycling. While visiting a bicycle flea market, he thought of a way to turn used bicycle parts into stylish, eco-friendly bike racks in a project he calls “Upcycle Fetish.” Scheiger tapped into bike resources and began collecting discarded handlebars, stems, and saddles. He then assembled and mounted the parts on pieces of scrap wood, which can be hung on a wall to suspend your prized bicycle. The fact that the racks resemble bull-head hunting trophies gives them a unique flair. Different styles of handle bars are used to hang other items as well: spare tubes, coats, scarves, hats – you name it!

    “The fact that the racks resemble bull-head hunting trophies gives them a unique flair.” Hm. “Unique” if you’ve never heard of an artist named Pablo Picasso and his “Bull’s head” sculpture. “Classic” maybe, or “evocative”. But not “unique flair”.

    This absolutely amazing up cycled art and I would like myself for my hat and my raincoat. Maybe, I’ll make one if and when I find the old cycle parts….
