This was probably the most unique bike that I saw at D2R2. Not sure if it will ever have a place beyond "gimmicky" but it was a novel idea. The lugs are stainless steel, apparently welded by NFG, the guy behind most of Spooky's in-house welding. The wood is laminated I believe. You'll have to forgive my lack of knowledge and memory on this one. I finally stopped to inspect it at dinner, some 14 hours after my day had started.
