Awesome Wooden Bike By Jan Gunneweg

This amazing handmade bike is probably made by the biggest wood fan in the designer world Jan Gunneweg from Amsterdam.

The real attention grabber on this bike is the addition of one thick wooden spoke on each tire that visually connects with the front fork and rear seat stay to create an ingenious optical effect that decreases the visibility of the metal spokes. They “symbolize the legs of man,” says Gunneweg. Not surprisingly, this was the hardest part to get right. “Balancing the wheels was pretty challenging because of the width of the wooden spoke,” Gunneweg says. He added a layer of wood inside both the front and rear rims as well.
