Arndt Menke- Zumbragel: woodway bicycle

Berlin designer arndt menke- zumbragel is the creator of this unique bicycle made using wood.
The project began by investigating the use of wood as a construction material, paying close attention to its particular considerations. the result is a fully functional bike with a frame weight of 2.3 kg.(5.07lbs) with some special metal parts and carefully constructed wood pieces, arndt has created a bike that blends new and old together into one unique package. Be sure to check out the bent wood detail on the rear support, so elegant it would make Michael Thonet green with envy. I find the Fixed geared bicycle interesting because of its simplicity, the form and function are matched. In the sense that all parts and pieces are necessary to create a finished piece of elegant machinery.
