The Brown Bike

This bike was built for a customer who has a daily commute and passed 5,000 miles.

Made entirely from birch, the Brown Bike, was named because of its Mahogany Woodstain finish.

The natural curve forks, and lighter seat stays, together with the 38mm tyres give an outstandingly comfortable ride.

The Bug Bike – Art you can ride!

The ‘Bug Bike’ was inspired by a set of poles with a naturally highly textured underbark structure which was revealed intact by our unique de-barking process.

Tracks visible on the surface of the poles were made by a beetle larvae which lived under the bark.

This inspired the graphics, designed and applied via pyrography by Emma Coates (for her website click here ).

The stiffness oriented frame offers sure footed handling on and off road, with great acceleration.

This bicycle was built as a prototype product and to demonstrate the virtue of BEAMZ material and structures by putting the material head to head with the best structural materials available.

Experienced cyclists have confirmed that it has handling characteristics comparable to other high performance bicycles but with a softer ride.

The frame and forks including the 1.5″ steerer are made from birch, while the handlebars are willow.

The joints are reinforced with hemp fibre and a bio-derived resin. At 11kg the bike is light and a thoroughly practical means of transport.
