More wooden bikes: Stay away from open flames!

Xylon Bikes tries to follow in the footsteps of Howard Huges (Spruce Goose). In an attempt to produce bike frames that are technologically advanced using not-so-advanced materials, Xylon has produced the following wooden bike frames.

The idea of developing a wooden bicycle is not only an excellent project opportunity for we designers, it also helps to fuel the enthusiasm for the appeal of the creative and technological challenges associated with the project. Wood has been used for centuries in the construction of shelter, boats, bridges, furniture, etc. Its qualities are recognized everywhere…..

I suppose these frames would work best with these fenders.

Ride On.
