We’re probably no different to you in enjoying a slightly out-there cycling story. Italian company GiocoSolutions are pressing ahead with an electric bike on an unusual frame. Less frame, more branch...
At 22kg, the Wood E-Bike (or WEB) is made of birch wood and okumè (an African hardwood) and has undergone processed "boating" to make it water-resistant.
There’s a rear hub motor and the 560Wh battery (up to 120km distance) is tucked away in the frame. Is it a great idea to have Lithium-Ion housed within wood? Presumably this has been considered.
No price has been announced as yet.
