Flat-Pack Bicycle Ships With Its Own Tools [Video]
'Sandwichbike' is an IKEA-like alternative to bike building and shipping that can be assembled at home.
The ‘Sandwichbike‘ is a bicycle made out of two wooden panels that join together without the need for welding joints. These weather-coated frames of layered plywood and the components are bonded together using “smart cylinders,” becoming a rock-solid piece of technology that is eye-catching and durable.
Designed by Basten Leijh, the bike was inspired by the concept of flat packing and home assembly. The contemporary design is an IKEA-like alternative to bike building and shipping.
