OKES Wooden Lifestyle Bike
The OKES Wooden Lifestyle Bike comes from dutch designer Reinier Korstanje. Its frame is made from solid hardwood. According to Korstanje’s site:
The name OKES came from a South-African ‘slang-word’. The word okes is used to describe a group of people by the younger generation. On the streets of Cape Town you can say: ‘ those okes have cool bikes’ This OKES bike frame is made out of high quality solid French oak wood. Classic bike frames are made of metal pipes, this limits the shape when designing a bike. Using a solid material instead, the design possibilities are endless. The pure and stylish frame is created by using slid oak wood. The frame is CNC-cut in a little town in Belgium at Hout Ambacht, a factory making high quality, custom, solid oak interior products.
