OK, so you are a woodworker, and you want to be totally surrounded by wood. Your furniture is wood. Your walls are paneled in wood. Your car has real wood trim.
But, what about your bike?
Well, there’s a European company called Sandwichbike, and they are making some sweet bikes out of birch plywood. The name comes from the fact that you build the bike out of assembled wooden plates that overlay each other like sandwich components. The bike arrives in a box, and it can be assembled in 45 minutes using an included wrench and fasteners.
Right now, they are pretty expensive at €799 (about $1,100), but as production takes off, the cost should come down. Until then, it’s a pretty interesting design…
