Waldmeister: Handmade Wooden Bike Wins Award


ISPO is the International Sports Expo, held in Germany twice a year. It’s where many of the up and coming trends are first spotted. The Waldmeister (literally Forest Master) bike by Marcus Wallmeyer scored a win in their current ‘BrandNew’ jury selection. It is handmade from about 100 thin layers of wood. The design is obviously unique but we’re told the ride also offers unprecedented comfort. Seems like the designer of the JANO plywood Dual bike was on the the right track after all. Another pic, after the jump, of the Waldmeister in all its glory. It seems not to contain a single piece of Shimano componentry, instead employing other top notch hardware.
