    Get some wood!

    "Portland-based Renovo Hardwood Bicycles' R4 Pursuit, made from two CNC'd halves of wood bonded together lengthwise (yielding a hollow core)."

    Wooden framed bicycle. Close ups look like a combination of walnut and ash. In some ways the structure resembles bamboo!

    That is very nice. Reminds me of a wood supercar I saw in Wood Magazine last year. The guy is building it for a student project. He actually wove wood veneer with resin to form a carbon fiber like body shell.
