Carbonwood Bicycle by Gary Galego

carbonwood

I bet you Austin folks get to ride bikes for most of the year, but here in Chicago our days are numbered (unless you’re one for riding in ice & snow, which I can’t seem to stomach, too scary for me!) but that doesn’t mean winter will stop me lusting after gorgeous bicycles. This particular one is by Gary Galego and its frame is a custom mix of wood & carbon. This makes for an incredibly strong & ultra lightweight frame. I think it’s only in small scale production in Australia for now, but I hope it’s more widespread soon. Read more on the bike here. Via Do it for the fame.
