The floodgates on repurposing bike items into office knick knacks seemed to open when Keith submitted a presta valve headset hook, and shortly thereafter Arron submitted a chain ring coaster. Now reader Ilan has a way to keep track of time . . .

I bent a brake disc horribly out of shape the other day. After I pulled it off my bike, I decided to give'r a wipe-down, bought a cheap clock from the dollar store, pulled out the internals, glued the disc to the clock's motor and reattached the hands.
A couple of bolts through the cross-drilled holes and it's eben good to go. It's not the most beautiful object ever created, but it's functional and looks good on my office desk. Version 2.0 will use deep nuts glued to the clock motor and the disc will be attached by bolts.
