Bonobo Plywood Bicycle by Polish Design Student Stanislaw Ploski
Polish design student Stanislaw Ploski has put forth this study in wooden bicycles that may have Renovo taking a good hard look.
The Bonobo Plywood Bike uses bent plywood to form the entire frame from just two sections. The top tube flows directly into the seatstays, which are cut out to accommodate the rear wheel. The downtube becomes the chainstays, and the flowing shape likely creates a bit of a forgiving ride, though we’re guessing there’s a rider weight limit.
This build has modern touches like disc brakes, and could easily be run geared or kept as singlespeed. Belt drive with internally geared hub would bring it all together quite nicely. Plenty more pics after the break…
