bike toys

head tube clock

We watch things come and go … and come back again.  “Vintage” and “retro” are everywhere – from fashion trends to digital photo apps and beyond. My son now wears glasses a la Buddy Holly, and despite his iPodery, he’s been collecting old vinyl records and plays them on a turntable.  Myself, I’m smitten with the lo-fi grainy look of photos from plastic toy film cameras, and have always loved vintage bikes.

And so, when I spotted this Stem Captain analog headset clock in the bike shop, I knew this was a toy I had to have.  While digital trip computers and hi-tech toys may be the order of the day for “serious” bikes, I felt that this was just the right accessory for Elisabetta.


she's not vintage ...

    Another component to add to my big dummy project.

    I agree….what a perfect accessory for Elisabetta. She is such a beauty.

    She is a beauty and that is a perfect addition to her headset.

    Those are such cool products. I’ve seen them before … I don’t like to know what time it is when I’m on the bike, though, so I’d probably go with the thermometer. Sorta wish there was a compass, but getting that to work might be a little tricky, I suppose.

    The clock looks great on your bike!

      Thanks :). And for the record, they do make a compass!
