Sandwichbike | Flat Packed Wooden Bicycle

We have featured some cool and innovative bicycles over the last couple of years, but nothing as original as this. The Sandwichbike designed by Dutch designer Basten Leijh, is unlike anything out there, it features two weather coated frames of layered plywood that are bonded together "sandwich" style instead of a traditional welded frame. Being made of wood makes it both durable and extremely attractive, and the fun part is, you build it yourself! it arrives at your doorstep in a "IKEA-style" flat package with everything you need including the tools, so you can start assembling right away. via
