    It’s beautiful!

    Wish they mass produced wooden bikes rather then metal ones, prob the lifespan of them would be much shorter but would be more environmentally friendly plus just a change on modern life. Ahh why no change? Anyways I’ve seen designs like this before, but I wonder if it actually works, would be so eye appealing to see it in London.

    Beautiful to look at, but I fear that it would be unpleasant to ride. There appears little provision for shock absorption, and I think it would be a very bumpy ride.

    A french company is actually producting an electric assisted bike with a wooden frame.

    But I aggre, I find this one beautifull but I would not ride it.

    This bike is so pretty and sculptural, but I am sure an uncomfortable ride. They do mass produce bamboo bicycles.

    This sure would not survive crumbling Michigan bike trails. More of an art piece than useful.

    How is this green, when instead of using re-cycleable metal we cut down trees.
    Looks beautiful and uncomfortable.

    A 31 pound bike? Ouch.

  9. Douglas

    Should have gone full wood – chain, sprockets, pedals, etc. Still, very nice.

  10. Pavel

    Beautiful, but not economically.

    I can’t find the brake :P

  12. Roy

    That’s a piece of art! A beautiful creation although possibly not very comfortable :-)

    Interesting how they left the brake and shift cables off of it. Wonder how it would detract from the look.
