Wheel’n Wood: An Innovative New Wooden Bicycle that Can be Assembled in Less than 20 Minutes

A sleek, unique bike is on the way that promises to immediately set its riders apart from other cyclists. The bikes are called Wheel’n Wood, and are exquisite wooden-framed bicycles, made to an original design and sold as kits that can be assembled in less than 20 minutes. It’s also possible to get the bikes already fully assemble thanks to Wheel’n Wood’s partner l'Entrepot du Vélo, for those who don’t want to have to assemble them.  They’re highly customizable, meaning that you can tailor them to your precise specifications.
            The wood that Wheel’n Wood’s frames are constructed from comes from responsibly managed forests, and the companies involved are recognized in their fields for the quality of their work. The benefit of wood as a material is that it can be easily decorated by drawing on it, painting it, or even adding engravings. Wooden surfaces lend themselves beautifully to a plethora of different finishes, which makes Wheel’n Wood perfect for people who wish to give their bikes a personal touch.
            Wheel’n Wood’s durability and weight are equal to those of conventional bicycles, so there’s no difference in terms of the way they handle. The steel steering column and bottom bracket come in standard sizes in order to offer you the widest possible range of options. The wooden frame has been finished with water repellent varnish and was designed for 26” wheels. The bikes are currently being financed via the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. Perhaps this marks a new era in which bikes are no longer confined to being made from a specific material or looking a certain way.
