This is a heart-shaped spoke decoration for a bicycle wheel. Painted edges are available as an option.
The heart shape is a symbol of love and romance, but it has a long and mysterious history. Some think it came from the seedpod of silphium, a rare plant that was used for birth control and love in ancient times. Others say it was based on the writings of ancient philosophers and doctors, who described the human heart as having three chambers and a dent. The heart shape became more popular in the Renaissance, when it was used in art and cards, and later in Valentine’s Day messages. Today, the heart shape is still a sign of affection and emotion.
This heart-shaped accessory is a custom design and is suitable for kids (14″, 16″, 20″, 24″, 26″ wheels) and adult bikes (26″, 650b, 700c, 29″) alike and is designed to stay in place and only slide minimally. (They are not noisemakers like some spoke beads)
The spoke decoration is about the size of a quarter, as shown in the picture.
Compatible with any bike wheel with standard round-diameter bicycle spokes (usually 1.8-2.3mm in diameter). Most road bikes, mountain bikes, kid bikes, and electric bicycles use spokes this size. Installation is easy, simply snap it onto your bike’s spokes and adjust as desired. Works on pavement and trails.
