Marco Facciola, a 16-year-old high school student, created a functional wooden bicycle to fulfill a class requirement. No metal was used (even for the chain and ratcheting system) - only wood and glue.

I got woodbikekid news item forwarded to me by a well meaning relative. A key feature discussed in the article was the biodegradablity of the thing. Yep, a few months lying on the ground and it will be indistinguishable from the rotting carcasses of the animals that lived in that Madagascar forest the ebony came from.
