Wooden bicycles

Some people just make do. The picture above is taken by road engineer Kjell A. Solberg somewhere on the border between Congo and Tanzania. It is not an art project or made for fun or anything, but for transport. Note the uncanny similarity in design between this one and the Philippene one below, culled from a piece in the blog of Make Magazine.  

Lots more stuff about this subject here. (Thanks, Peter!)
