>>> Hoopy Wooden Bicycle

From our friends over at WoodenWidget:

It’s not a boat (make sure and check out their dinghy plans while you’re there – it was my first boat build), but looks like a lot of fun.

Wonder about using a CNC to cut that frame… I’ll have to ask 🙂

The Hoopy wooden bicycle. It might look complicated to make but the frame can be marked, cut out and glued ready for varnish in just two days. The box section frame is immensely strong yet only weighs 3 kilos.

The Hoopy is a ‘one size fits all’ bicycle but the seat can be raised or lowered during the build if required. It can carry two with ease and will make you friends wherever you go. It’s also great to ride. Surprisingly fast and very comfy.

Most of the parts needed to build a Hoopy are easily available secondhand or can be salvaged from old bikes.
