The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
I have seen wooden bicycles before, but this is the first time I have seen a wooden tandem. Jens Eichler of Germany created this bike from 83 pounds of plywood. After carving away 22 pounds, he was left with a 61 pound frame. After adding in all the other parts, total weight was 114 pounds. Since it is rather heavy and took 400 hours to construct, it's not a very practical design. Still, you have to admire the beauty of the finished product.
