I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    I ply-ke that a lot Ash-Yew-ally.
    It’s t-Oak-ally better than the Alder version. Looks very Maple-ble and is likely to totally laminate the competition.

    I work with a lot of laminates and ply myself and have to say, I’m surprised they would manage to get enough lateral strength into that section of seat stay. Looks fairly minimal for railing Ferns, I mean, berms.

    One thing though. Be careful of detail shots when the detail isn’t quite perfect 😉
    Little bit of cheeky breakout on those dropout bolt drillings. Classic thing when you have really short grain near the edge on a laminate like that.

    Sorry. Can’t help noticing stuff like this. I think my eyes are instantly drawn to defects that perhaps the person in the street might not pick up on.
    Cool looking bike though 😊👌

    It’s great to see people doing bikes with wood. Would like to build something myself but it’s not really something that fires me up enough I suppose.

    I like the look of that, but

    Did cross my mind too, unless there’s some bracing we can’t see from that angle.
