On a recent ride through the West Village in Manhattan, I stopped in at the new Tommy Boutique at 375 Bleeker Street and discovered yet another creative approach to upcycling discarded bicycle parts. This free-form “chandelier” is constructed of steel frames wired with vanity bulbs. It forms the centerpiece of the 1,000-square-foot shop, which showcases Tommy Hilfiger’s new women’s and men’s collections for a younger, less buttoned-downed crowd.

If this colorful assemblage inspires a desire to acquire a recycled ride, then walk a couple of blocks west to Hudson Urban Bicycles at 139 Charles Street to explore a bounty of new and used city bikes, plus accessories. HUB is offering 20 percent off on used bikes through Christmas. Jack Spade at 400 Bleeker Street also includes a modest inventory of vintage bicycles among its apparel and accessories.

  • Amazing how one can recycle and repurpose things–turning bike frames into art like that. Some of the bikes you have featured recently qualify as art in and of themselves. I love that vanilla bike from one of your recent posts!
