Beautiful Wooden Bikes..

13 06 2011

The hand-built WRD-11 mahoganny bike built by Sueshiro Sano has got to be the most beautiful.. flowing.. and well engineered bicycle in the wood bicycle category..

Not only is it made with more wood than other wooden bikes I’ve seen (including mahogany saddle rails.. seat.. handle bars.. and even rims).. It is so customized.. that because the seat post/tube is one piece (for frame strength/durability).. it needs to be measured and built according to your proper body dimensions.. No adjustments if you decide to shrink or grow..

Peugeot Innovates On A Bike..

1 02 2010

A few might not know this.. but Peugeot not only has a long history with cars.. but also with bicycles.. Since the late 1800’s.. they’ve been sponsoring riders and building racing bikes..  And yes.. I’ve seen some really cool bike concepts in the past.. But the B1K by Peugeot has really caught my eyetention.. Unorthodox carbon fiber frame/suspension.. chainless transmission.. hubless rear.. and what looks like run-flat/airless pullover tires.. hmmmmmm..
