First Ever Wooden Fixed Gear Bicycle?


Found this via FixedGearGallery by way of  It’s a handbuilt wood bike called the Birch Bike and was crafted by Alan Downey in Austin, TX.  Sure, it’s a bit odd to see a double crankset on a fixie, but irregardless, it’s supposedely the first all wood fixed gear bike submitted to their gallery.

Another photo after the break, or just shoot on over to FGG for more…

Irregardless isn’t a word. Try regardless

Beautiful. How’s the ride? Responsive? Flexy? Stiff? Smooth? So curious.

but it sounds funny…try saying it a few times in a whiny tone, makes a great conversation interjector. I doubt “interjector” is a word either.
