Gallery: Jan Gunneweg’s All-Wood Bicycle Comes With Matching Shades

 
This bicycle from Jan Gunneweg is not only made from solid wood: it comes with matching wood sunglasses. Sounds gimmicky, but you have to see the photos to believe how beautifully crafted this bicycle is. From the frame to the assymetrical wheels, Gunneweg's bike is lovingly shaped into an incredibly elegant form of transport, and the shades go right along with the package.

Even the tires are a natural wood tone, a nice touch that makes this bike appear to be almost entirely crafted from maple. Just the handlebars, adjustable seat mount, spokes, pedals, and chain are metal. We’re not so sure about riding on a wooden seat, but otherwise can’t imagine a more stylish way to pedal to work.

    This is really a pretty cool concept. I bet this looks amazing while you are cruising around on it. A real head turner I would bet.
