As more people opt for a lighter, durable carbon fiber construction for their bicycles, designer Chris Connor is taking a different route as he rolls out his Wooden Bicycles.

Connor Wood Bicycles looks to capitalize on the current trend of bicycles by creating their own sub-niche in wooden constructed 2 wheelers. The bikes feature an ash wood frame that has been hit with Walnut center stripes for adding styling, while Kevlar reinforcements provide that extra bit of durability. According to Chris Connor there is nothing quite like riding a bike made from trees.  “Wood delivers a fabulous ride. You haven’t ridden anything like it before. It’s supple, but strong and makes a delightfully smooth ride.”
