A Wooden Bicycle?

Yesterday we talked about ice cream, good ice cream. Today lets talk about ideas, good ideas.

A couple of doors down from Ed’s Real Scoop is a business called Handmade Cabinets. Fred, the owner of Handmade, does some neat stuff with wood, including the “built from wood” bicycle you see in the picture above. But the bike is more than what you see.

What you see is the prototype, he is now working on number 2 which, by the way, you could own, for a mere $2500.
