A wooden bike made from solid ash

This wooden bike by Amsterdam based designer and woodworker Paul Timmer is made from solid ash. No veneer or plywood is used in this frame. It becomes strong enough by extraordinary attention to detail. This frame is built completely from the ground up. No standard parts are used to build the frame. Unlike other wooden frames, the headset and dropouts are designed with the frame, instead of usage of standard frame-builder parts. The custom non-wooden parts are 3D printed aluminium. The external fork and woodwork are a result of the reinvention of the bike frame.
