Unique Sandwich Bike
The sandwich bike is very different and gets its name from the product that is being used to assemble the bicycle. Instead of a conventional welded frame, it is engineered as a â€˜sandwichâ€™ of two weather coated frames of layered plywood. They are then bonded together by â€˜smart cylindersâ€™, and the frames and components become a rock-solid piece of technology.
Assembling a Sandwich Bike
The Bike has been designed such that it can be packaged and sent by post. A few simple steps to assemble it and Lo! You have a unique bicycle! The box contains everything one needs to assemble the bike, including the tools. The assembling is akin to those that we often give kids to build their own toys. Only difference being, the final product that is durable and usable.
