Bike Porn: Woody's

Brooklyn NY's Bamboo Bike Studio has a program where you harvest your own bamboo (from a place in New Jersey) and then fabricate your own bamboo bicycle over a ten-week Build-A-Bamboo-Bike workshop - and actually, the bamboo is competitive with carbon fiber in terms of dampening vibrations, it's as strong as a steel frame, and weight-wise the bamboo is better than steel.





We've also recently seen an all-wood bicycle - wheels, cranks, everything is wood. No metal, no screws, no bolts - just wood and glue. UK's SplinterBike doesn’t have a single piece of metal, rubber or plastic. The axles are made of ekki. The frame, wheels and cogs are birch, and the bearings are ironwood. The pedals and handlebars have been refashioned from a broom handle.




But the subject of today's post is a new plywood bicycle designed by Stanislaw Ploski:



Very cool stuff.

These products are made of quality steel construction for long-lasting durability and production and are generally fairly light in weight at around 20-25 lbs per trailer.
