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.

    Those are the first wooden bikes I’ve ever thought looked half nice. That hard tail is amazing looking

    Looks like a very precise construction, but the sharp edged aesthetic would appear to create lots of stress risers.

    I’d have to disagree nickc, the road bike I think is very pretty. The hardtail, I don’t know why but it really isn’t, I think maybe it’s the slight curvature of the top tube, possibly the way the headtube sits on the fork, or the drunken bend in the seat tube but something just makes it look wrong to me.

    Also, they missed a trick not putting a timber bell on them.

    His website shows his own impact and fatigue test rigs with loadcells etc, and they are also tested independently (presumably at UTAC in France or EFBE in Germany). So I don’t think stress raisers are a concern.

    A classic example of just because you can doesn’t mean that you should.

    Yeah, my favourite is the road bike – a really nice looking bike – some great skill to make those shapes in wood!
