Andy Martin releases the remarkable Beech Wood Bike

Thonet in collaboration with London-based designer Andy Martin have created an amazing concept road bicycle. The bike is made from beech wood, with carbon fibre wheels. It’s truly a machine of beauty and allows for a greater connection to the bicycle and the surface on which you ride. With the capability of using several interchangeable gear ratios we’d recommend it. Oh, just one thing: there’s no brakes. Yes, ouch, ouch, ouch.
