Dutch Design: A Flat Pack Wood Bike
The plywood Sandwichbike began seven years ago as a concept bike by Bleiijh, a Dutch design studio. Yes, the Internetz are littered with the brittle bones of cool-looking concept bikes that never saw the light of production.
These metal and plywood single speed bikes are designed to be shipped in an Ikea-style flat pack.
Everything needed for assembly, including the tools, is included in the package. Trust me, it's awesome to ride a rad-looking bike and tell people that you built it yourself.
And while I love the beauty of the natural wood, the surface is also a natural canvas. Just customize the panels before building your bike.
