Wooden frame. Carbon fork and wheels. Truvativ crank, stem, and handlebars.
These bicycles are from Freiburg in the Black Forest, Germany’s so-called “green city.” The prototype, the wild-Bike 2007, won the Brand New Award at ISPO, greatest sporting show in the world.
Designer, Marcus Wallenberg Meyer, 32, built his award winning prototype in 2006. Now in production, the striking limited edition bikes aren’t cheap. 11,000 – 15,000 euros ( $14,000 – $19,000 USD ), depending on the equipment. There are not many wooden bikes in production. Jano is a concept that we hope gets produced.
