Designer Rowan Tindale teamed up with sustainable transport charity Sustrans to make a bike that is as sustainable to produce as it is to use. The frame is made of wood salvaged from Brighton’s sea defenses, and it has been laminated using a bio-epoxy resin. The back fork is made of wood salvaged from a tree affected by ash dieback that was steam bent to accommodate the rear wheel. The rest of the parts have all been salvaged from broken bikes to produce a bike made entirely from waste or recycled material.
