Gallery: Pietro Russomanno’s BKR Concept Bike Has a Sturdy Wood Frame

 

The BKR is a concept bicycle by Pietro Russomanno with a sturdy, malleable, and elastic wood frame. The bike’s skeleton is crafted from plywood with inert rubber gaskets sandwiched in for effect. The cycle features an innovative ‘Easy Saddle’ system that allows the rider to change the height of the seat by simply pushing a button. A specifically designed dynamo on the front wheel generates energy and transmits speed/distance information directly to a Smartphone dock on the handlebars.
