World's First Electric Wooden Bike Leads The Charge To Sustainable Cycling

(HEY. "World's First"... THEIR words, NOT mine. Hehe)

Seen here:
http://inventorspot.com/articles/worlds ... able-cycli

In part:
Bough Bikes is a world leader in the field of handmade all-wood bicycles, having produced over 300 pedal-powered two-wheelers from sustainably harvested French Oak. Now the Dutch manufacturer is, ahem, branching out into electrobikes, showing off two prototype electric wooden bikes at this year's NYCxDesign. - See more at: http://inventorspot.com/articles/worlds ... 88Aat.dpuf

Watt? NO mention on ES for the Crossbow by Gnosis???

Image
Crossbow by Gnosis PD
by Richard Malachowski

The Crossbow concept is a recumbent trike powered by two front electric motors, front shock absorbers and an Omni wheel as a rear wheel. The Omni allows the driver to steer in close angle and drift along the curves for an extreme fun driving experience.

seem to recall a baterry made with cellulose but a wood eclectic motor might be hard 2find.
Kick down the barricades Listen what the kids say.
From time to time people change their minds But the Frock is here to stay.
I've seen it all from the bottom to the top Everywhere I go the kids wanna Frock.

They used to put the electrical charge directly to one leg at a time. Worked well no matter how tired you got.

crap...looks like all the images and videos in there are broken...but the motor was made of routered marine plywood sheets. It was actually originally linked somewhere in this thread, years back.

I NEED that! Especially for the 3rd leg. The wannabe wooden one. Do you have a link Dauntless?

O/T(?) a friend in a wheelchair gave me a broken electronic pulse thingy to stimulate his thighs to build muscle mass... we never discussed, but I could only assume why he wanted it. ... I never did fix it, and felt guilty about my laziness/ ineptitude. That was years ago, but just a few days ago his new GF gave birth, so I feel less guilty! Hope I live to help fix his kid's first bikes! .. uh, maybe I could make one of those wooden pedal-less kid scoots (return to Topic?) ...

You might want to start slow on that, maybe the stims device on low. I think by the time it was tough enough to take it you might not have any fun with it any more.
