Who needs carbon when you have mahogany?

A couple of weeks ago Dave sent me a link to some of the most beautiful bicycles you’re ever likely to see. Every one of them – and there are many – is hand-made by Japenese wooden ship builder, SUESHIRO SANO. The guy’s been crafting timber since he was 13 years old. Talk about a talent.

As Dave says, “No idea how much they cost but they are beautiful machines – would love to turn up to SOP on Tuesday morning on one of these babies!” Me too Dave. Me too.
