Michael Thompson in Norfolk, UK is building a wooden bike. His friend James Tully will attempt a world land speed record for a wooden bike on this bike.
Unlike many previous wooden bikes, Thompson’s bike has no metal parts — he’s aimed for 100% wood and glue. That means no chain, no screws, or bolts. It means a wood saddle, wood crank and spindle, wood steerer, wood gears, and even wood wheels.
Thompson calls his bike The Splinter Bike.
Props to Edwin.
