Little things make me happy. Often I will try to spice up my whip or clothing I wear with little things that are somewhat unique. Reader Cory shares a similar penchant and came up with this great little way to bling up your key ring.

I recently flatted while out on the road and had a spare tube as a result. Rather than just recycle it, as I normally do, I started thinking of what I could do with it. I came up with the idea of using the valve as a keychain to spice up my keys a bit! All you need is one old road tube and a pair of scissors.
Cut the tube a few mm from where the valve meets the tube. Then, slide it on your caribeaner or key ring! Looks awesome, starts conversation, and can even get you connected with other cyclists!
