Yojiro Oshima’s Beautifully Sculpted Bicycle is Made Almost Entirely From Wood
This amazing wooden bicycle was completely hand-crafted by Yojiro Oshima, a design student at the Craft&Industrial Department at Musashino Art University in Tokyo. The wooden bike features a sculptural wooden frame that softens the ride while retaining an optimal level of stiffness.
The cycle is made from hollowed-out 6-12 mm sections bonded together to create a flowing network of rims and spokes. The curve at the top of the spokes absorbs impacts, and the beam-style seat tube improves overall comfort. The bike has tri spoke-style wheels (known as “baton wheels”), which feature an arc between the spokes and rim that is designed to reduce large impacts.
