Design of the week: Wooden Splinter Bike


We think Michael Thompson deserves this week’s design of the week with his “Splinter bike”.

This bike, minus a touch of glue and a lick of paint, is made entirely out of wood! This might not sound the most sensible of designs, as to ride it you have to find an incredibly smooth surface, but Michael has created this bike for a very good reason. He hopes to set a land speed record for wooden bikes, in turn raising money for charity Shelter Box.

We’ll definitely be keeping an eye on how he does!
