This is the final bike, the layers have been laser cut and glued together with bio-resin. Following the success of my second sample i have used greenheart wood reclaimed from brighton sea defencesto form the majority of the frame and the back forks are steambent ash.

Once these layers have been glued the frame needs to be shaped by hand so it looks more attractive and also to reduce some of the weight. I have chosen greenheart because it is strong and also because of its Brighton connection, but it is a very heavy wood, so although when it has been fully shaped it will lose a lot of weight, it is going to be a fairly heavy bike.
