Wooden Electric Bike Prototyping Stages : Prototype Version 5

A visual overview of the many steps involved in prototyping version 5.xx of a handmade wooden bicycle. Here we are making one manual bike and three more electric wooden bicycles for Renaissance Products Group. This production run should yield four wooden sapele bikes from one sheet of one inch thick custom produced plywood. Frames are sapele ply, seatstay is sapele ply, solid sapele chain stays and for the dropouts we custom CNC mill out of a sheet of 3/8 aluminum. Making Bikes in this bespoke fashion is fairly precise with accuracy and attention to details paramount.
