Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here, Nick Coates shows us an innovative way to work with a wide range of coppiced wood - to produce high-performance bicycles. With his considerable engineering experience and keen interest in working with sustainable materials, Nick has designed a unique and naturally beautiful product as a social enterprise. Pyrography artwork, by Nick`s daugher Emma, is an eye-catching addition to the bike poles.

You are quite right there Dan. In the longer term we would like to have a network of branches in the USA making bikes there from the local wood species which grow there. Local structural needs solved with local material worked by local people.
