Stability of wooden bikes
Why is wooden bike better than metallic bike
In the begin many things we use today were made of wood. After that, they were made of plastic, metal and other material. Different to metal, the wood absorbs vibration and jumping of the bicycle while riding. It is very unpleasant, while driving metal bicycle, because we can feel the vibration going over to our wrist.
How to repair your wooden bike
When there should be done a repair, it is often much easier to repair a wooden bicycle than a metallic bicycle. For example, when there is a stone that dents into bicycle frame, the repair is always easier to be made to the wooden one.
When wood is lacquered and properly dried, it is more durable than metal. That’s why wooden bicycle is stable regarding to vibrations, but also sustainable to the weight. Example for that is the wooden bridge on the river Glomma in city Flisa, Norway.The length of the bridge is 181,5 m, the width is 71 m and there are two traces for cars. The Flisa-bridge is made of lacquered wood.
