This bike may look pretty simple at first glance–and that’s the idea. But the DV01 boasts beautiful wood details, including a solid straight wood handlebar and a gorgeous wood storage rack. David Qvick designed this concept bike, which aims to blend function with simple style.

Mr. Qvick set out to balance the priorities of convenient transportation and high aesthetic value, as well as balance the components of a bicycle. We think he has achieved his objective. These lovely images are courtesy of photographer John Wennerberg.

    ‘Concept’?.. ‘Amazing’?… Are you serious?.. It’s just an old racer (except the gears have been removed) with a wooden handlebar (quite possibly the most ridiculous part of this – there’s a reason why handlebars are made of strong materials that don’t break easily), a wooden rack (where’s the ‘storage’??) on a welded-on support tube, a black paint job and a ‘cool’ name.. What’s the concept?.. You guys are mugs..

    Nice how the rack doubles as a mudguard. What sort of wood are those handlebars? The last thing I want to worry about while riding my bike is my handlebars snapping and sending huge splinters through my arm. They do looks stylee, though.
