For my upcycle project, I am planning on using a damaged bicycle wheel. This Idea originates from a few months back when I damaged the front wheel of my bicycle to a point where it was no longer functional. I’ve already installed a new wheel on my bike, so this damaged wheel has been sitting in my garage for a couple of months now, so I decided to upcycle it into something useful. After doing some research, I realized that there are an incredible amount of things people have previously designed a bicycle wheel into. I saw designs that ranged everything from lamps and tables to benches and tables.
My idea is to combine a few things that have appeared throughout different designs and make a unique product. I have not finalized precisely what I will build, but it will be something that involves lights(probably RGB) and a bike wheel. I did see designs that involved turning the wheel into a clock, which I actually like a lot so I might go down that route. If I decide to make a clock design, I want it to stand out from the plenty of others that have already been designed. I plan on doing that by implementing some unique designs involving different color schemes. I will also make the clock hands into a unique design using some leftover plywood or laser-printing cardboard.
