If you’ve ever dreamed of building your own bike but don’t have any experience, you may want to check out the Pedalfactory’s Sandwichbike. Inspired by flat pack furniture, this wooden bike is shipped in a compact cardboard box and can be easily assembled in under an hour. The eye-catching frame is built from sustainably harvested beech plywood and treated to withstand the outdoor elements. The key to the ingenious design lies in the carefully milled aluminum cylinders that snap together to transform the flat pack collection of separate wood panels and wheels into a fully functioning Sandwichbike. The Pedalfactory has also recently launched four new models of their successful wooden bicycle built for a variety of cycling conditions and landscapes.
