    Interesting. But, it is one of those things that begs the question: Why?

    As a work of art, it's very interesting. But it's not a very practical bicycle. For performance, a bike needs to be as light as possible and that's why bicycle designers use exotic materials in their quest to reduce the weight of the bike.

    Very cool. Maybe a bit impractical weight-wise, but I suspect it's not intended for long rides. Much more refined than this wooden motorcycle:
