This Sunday 25 March come along to Maribyrnong’s Family Bike Day and hear all about the council's current…
Sueshiro Sana is a ninth-generation Japanese shipwright who produces beautifully hand-crafted wooden bikes out of mahogany.
According to Sana, the bike’s structure is actually improved by the mahogany – the wood lends flex and responsiveness in a way no metal frame ever could, giving riders an increased sense of control. The bike also weighs only 8kg.
A number of his bikes have actually been raced professionally, through all terrains and weather types. Amazing!
