Wooden BIke

This came across the wire today. Check it out. Click on the title above to go to the link.

I shall note that he wisely decided at one point to steer away from a Direct Drive system (fixed), and constructed a ratchet for the rear wheel.

I doubt the wood chain would hold up to the forces of stopping the direct drive. He states it was so he wouldn't have to pedal down hills.....So funny, why would you want to coast down a hill when you can go faster still?
