Pictures: Dutchman designs wooden bike

Dutchman Jan Gunneweg has created yet another masterpiece out of wood, this time turning his attention to his countries favorite mode of transportation, the bike.

An industrial designer in Amsterdam, Gunneweg has made just about everything out of wood, from sunglasses to wheelchairs, park benches to poker tables. His latest creation, the wooden bike, offers a smooth ride and elegant finish. A thick wooden spoke on each tire visually connects with the front fork and rear seat, which creates an optical effect that decreases visibility of the metal spokes. While Gunneweg has designed two wood-framed bikes already, his latest offering is said to be his best yet.
