A lot of designs that incorporate wood try to totally replace another material such as steel or plastic. This bike design by Arndt Menke, however, uses the organic stuff in only a few key locations.

The Holzweg Wooden Bike frame actually uses ash wood to help dampen the thumps and bumps that biking can sometimes bring. Check out some other innovative wood creations below.

Implications - As technology advances every day, consumers are looking for ways to stay connected to nature. Items that are integrated with organic elements of the Earth appeal to customers who desire this need for more green products. Keeping this in mind when developing products could attract a higher level of revenue for companies.
