I broke the derailleur hanger from a Trek 2200 after many years of hard use.  This happened to be a terminal condition for this bike.  Couldn't bring myself to toss it after so many wonderful miles - so it sat around my garage.  Used the top tube and down tube for some other project a few years ago, which left the rear triangle lonely in the corner.  I decided the triangle would make a decent shop stool, just had to make a few pieces and reclaim a seat tube from another spare bike.

Step 1:

Firs step cut out the rear triangle.  This bike already had the top tube and down tube salvaged, I just needed to make a cut closer to the tubes.  This happened to be a carbon tube bike, with aluminum lugs. 
why not use an actual bicycle seat for the seat?
Totally friggin sweet! Unloved bikes are everywhere!
Great idea! Thanks!!!!! <br>
This is pretty cool. Are there any plans to add casters?
