    You may also have noticed that the frame features a pear, which Michael explains is because at some point the project will inevitably "go pear-shaped".

    Now that they have what they believe is the world's first rideable wooden bicycle (others have been built that were too fragile to use) they intend to set a land speed record.
    The guys are barking mad, in the best possible way. I highly approve of such insane behaviour! :lol:
