Have you ever thought of buying a bike made from wood? I happened upon a BBC World Service radio programme the other day:

The Coh&Co featured in the programme look a bit boxy:

But the bikes made by another maker, Materia, look beautiful. Just look at the lovely grain on that walnut:

Five grand? Ouch!

The case for bamboo bikes looks interesting, and I think the prices are a little less outrageous. But I have yet to try one in practice. :(
