What a concept… Laminated bicycle frames from beautiful wood.

This frame is made from Walnut, yellowheart and padauk. I’m impressed. There is quite a bit of information about the wood and wood technology on their website. I’m sure it will be of interest to other LumberJocks.

I’ve seen this concept before, and it provides food for thought. What a way to combine two great hobbies.
