Swapping your car for your bicycle as your primary means of transportation is an admiral eco decision, and it's in a model like the Lagomorph Black Walnut Bike that makes attention to nature truly explicit.

This beautiful bicycle boasts a structured yet soft frame made from small beams of hardwood. Nine primary pieces reveal the elegance of organic wood grain, but the hand of the designer is evident in the crisply rectilinear cuttings of each timber component. What looks like, however, a flat sort of structure from the side is actually a rather dynamic one when viewed from the front or the back. The fork and the seatstays of the Lagomorph Black Walnut Bike have been gracefully splayed to enhance its third dimension with an aesthetic of subtle angles.
