Raleigh meets IKEA | Flat-pack Bicycle

A bicycle that has been made out of wood and can be assembled at home in less than an hour has gone into production.

The company, Pedalfactory, developed the bicycle back in 2006 but it has gone into commercial production recently and will be officially launching in Amsterdam on Sunday.

International orders are being taken now and will be dispatched in the new year.

Let’s hope the self-assembly is as easy as they claim!
