BESPOKE BIKES

We can make pretty much any combination of wood essence, steel colours and accessories (handlebar type, gears, saddle, brakes, mudguard, lights etc.) as each WOOD.b is made and assembled by hand.

For your own convenience we offer 3 models below that are 'ready to ride' but we will get in touch with you to finetune details in any case! Images are not contractual as each WOOD.b is meant to be different and personal, for instance we tend to recommend aluminium handlebars and we also strongly advise to install a front-break!

You can choose the tint of your wooden frame and the color of the metal parts. Have a look here.

BRAND STORY

WOOD.b was designed by Claude Saos and Thierry Boltz, who are designers living in Strasbourg (East of France).

Interestingly, "Strasbourg started to plan bicycle infrastructure in 1978 and there are more than 580km of cycle tracks, with the Alsatian capital claiming the honour of being the city in France where bicycles as a means of daily of transport are used the most." (Source: Freewheelingfrance)

Then, it was just a matter of time before Claude and Thierry decided to design their own frame and bike, using the noblest materials available. The WOOD.b brand concept was born out of desire to create the purest frame design and give riders the best biking experience possible with no complication or extravagant detail.

Each frame is made with ash wood supplied by In'Bô from French forests and steel parts manufactured in the South of France.

WOOD.b is an exceptional bike. Each WOOD.b is made for you by hand in collaboration with the best brands: BROOKS, SHIMANO, STURMEY ARCHER, VELO ORANGE, CURANA, LEZYNE and SUPERNOVA for lights.

As WOOD.b uses metal parts, you can go to your bike repair shop without any problem, instead of going to a carpenter workshop as you should with other wooden bikes.

WOOD.b is internationally patented and it is the first wooden bike in the world that can be entirely customized.
