The seat stays of that wood bike are particularly clever - I assume they act as springs.

The majority of the bikes in the 'high tech' section of the Dark Roast link are DRAWINGS, not photos. Most of the designs in the drawings have at least one fatal flaw that makes them unworkable with current materials or some other fatal flaw (like the hubless bike that can't be fitted with pneumatic tires).

The seat stays of the wood bike are very interesting. I'd love to see video footage of someone riding it.
