Arndt Menke’s Wood

Photobucket
Wood what a useful material. Back in the day we used it to make fire, nowadays it’s used……….wait it isn’t really used that much in technological advances. Well Arndt Menke disagrees, wood isn’t useless it’s just as good as aluminium and he has put his theory to work by producing a bike frame made completely from wood. When I first saw it I thought it must have some sort of metal inside the wooden exterior to strengthen it. But no this Master diploma thesis project shows wood is still a material that should be considered. Not only does it weigh just 2.3kg (which is pretty light), look at it. It’s amazing to look at as well. Wood bikes ftw >_>.
