Just another "mixed up" European here
I agree, some translators are horrible.
Hopefully my own English is better.
About wooden bicycles:
Here is a nice project from a guy nearby.
He is an architect and builds wooden velomobiles (faired recumbent tricycles) in his free time.
There's a mile long thread in the German velomobilforum about his builds.
https://www.velomobilforum.de/forum/ind ... ise.38648/
Currently he's into his fifth build.
The first project was a 40+kg test mule for determining the needed ergonomics and material dimensions, which ended as an Easter fire
Build2 (around 32kg) can be seen here:
This is build3 during some airflow tests.
His fourth build, now tipping the scale at 22kg:
Velomobil in Holzbauweise
All three completed builds are driven by himself and his sons.
I met him a few weeks ago at his home, talking for some hours about his building techique which is close to what was used in wooden airplanes almost a century ago.
Most impressive to me was his test work of some sort of "wood comb": He made a sandwich using two sheets of 0.6mm thin airplane plywood with 3mm thick balsa strips glued in between. This results in a weight of just 1000g/m², but is rock solid.
Also impressive to see, how he reduced the weight further and further from build to build.
Only flaw for you is, you have to use a translator for the said German thread.
