Dan Gestoso Rivers‘ Boske bike is a beautiful wood cycle inspired by the design of IKEA‘s flat-pack kit furniture. The bike’s frame is made from curved laminated wood, and the mechanical pieces (such as the front fork and the seat base) are made of aluminum extracted from recycled cans. The whole bike can be easily assembled using one Allen wrench, and parts can be replaced in a snap. Boske is a different approach to bicycle design that plays with tradition and technology at the same time.
