Our New Year's resolution to exercise more would certainly be a lot more fun (and not to mention stylish) on this wooden bicycle from Alma Bicycles.
The bike was designed around the basic principle that it should be similar to a piece of furniture. The frame has rounded corners on the essential points to complete the circularity of the wheels and to simplify the manufacturing process. Made from multiple layers of veneer just like furniture, two steel tubes are inserted through the frame to ensure stiffness and to handle torsional forces.
The bicycle is handmade in the Netherlands and custom built to order. The frame colour can be customised and comes in a choice of light ash and dark mahogany veneer. There are also three different colour options for the steel tubes: black, grey and white.
