Get a grip...

...this bank holiday weekend!
At last, winter is over and despite the current damp spell I'm busy assembling the new and improved SplinterBike in preparation of our next mission...  The Hour Record for 100% Wooden Bicycles - this will require No1 SplinterBike rider James Tully to pedal SplinterBikeThree for 60 minutes and the total distance travelled, without putting his feet down, will be the new Hour Record for 100% wooden bicycles.

I'm starting from the ground up and as usual, the only materials I can use are: wood and glues, no bolts or screws!

In addition, I have been asked by the Cultural Olympiad, which is part of the London 2012 Olympics, to produce a special model that has an adjustable seat and handlebar positions to give more people the chance to have a ride. SplinterBikeQuantum will be included in the Adain Avion event as part of the London 2012 Festival – a chance for everyone to celebrate London 2012 through design, dance, music, theatre, the visual arts, film and digital innovation.

Get your name on SplinterBikeThree!
