Rolling Art Bicycles are individually designed and handcrafted from a select stock of wood. Each frame is a unique work of art with custom laminations and inlay designs. The wooden bike frames and aluminum parts are crafted by Mark Osgood. His love of cycling and woodworking combine to produce bicycles of enduring quality and function.
Mark has been building in wood since his elementary school days and has incorporated ornamental details in his furniture as well as his bicycles. By virtue of their material, these bikes have a very smooth ride and are truly rolling works of art.
Frames start at $5900.
Rolling Art Bicycles have been inspired by both the quality wood frames in the Pacific Northwest and the sculptured furniture of Sam Maloof.
This futuristic bicycle won first place in a rigorously judged contest sponsored by the professional woodworking industry. It is a “one-off” road bike made from maple and walnut. The bike is fully functioning and a joy to ride as well as a crowd gatherer. See more in the “Photos” section and at the Veneer Tech Craftsman’s Challenge contest page.
The bike will be featured on the cover of the September 2016 issue of FDMC magazine. FDMC is the major trade journal of the professional woodworking industry.
