The Splinter Bike

Coming at you live from Shenzhen, after the Asia Fixed Gear Championships: something nothing to do with Shenzhen, Hangzhou, or Asia.Bike blog : Michael Thompson, the creator of the SplinterBike

The Splinter Bike. It sounds like a villian of the bike word, something Shredder from TMNT would ride. And of course, it’s fixed.

Apparently, it’s the result of a bet between a carpenter and his cyclist friend, and they’re trying to find sponsors for the apparently hefty sum of money  (about 15 grand US) required to set the land speed record for…wooden bikes?
