Dutch Design: A Flat Pack Wood Bike

Would you ride a wood bike? I would. (Technically, I made my favorite bike out of grass.)

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.

However, according to Coolhunting, the Sandwichbike is now available for pre-order inquiries. And it will be introduced for sale in late 2013.

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.
