Splinter Bike Quantam


Spotted on Designboom

Having dabbled pretty extensively in woodworking myself, the newest addition to the SplinterBike family immediately caught my eye. A completely wooden monocoque bicycle built for speed. The amount of time and planning put into this bicycle (over 400 hours) blows my mind. Not a single piece of metal was used to create the bike; just old fashioned wood and glue. The video is a bit dry but if you are interested in the technical aspect, it's worth a watch. The handle bars are fabricated from refinished broom handles, gotta love it!
