The Sandwichbikes is a very unusual concept bicycle by Designer Basten Leijh. The bike's frame is made of two plywood panels and is shipped to the customer for self-assembly in a flat-pack manner, complete with tools.

To enable you to build it yourself, Basten Leijh had to rethink every aspect of the classic velocipede. He came up with a concept that is unlike anything out there. Instead of a welded frame, it is engineered as a ?sandwich? of two weather coated frames of layered plywood. Bonded together by ?smart cylinders?, the frames and components become a rock-solid piece of technology that is both durable and extremely attractive.
