Many thanks for posting this @Mercian.Rather nice, I would love one, for both the Paris and Coventry links.
Paris, Circa 1897.
And for the non French readers:
"This bicycle was designed at the same time and according to the same principle as the famous Thonet chairs. The framework is comprised of the bent wood stems assembled by means of steel parts. The crosspiece of the handlebar and the wheel rims are also in wood. The advantages of the wood construction are above all the lightness (11 kg) and flexibility (hence the name of the marque ). The design, with its mountings in the form of an arc of circle forming the guide wires and the bases, is that of a framework in steel tube built by Bonnick in Coventry in 1891. At the present time, after more than a century of disinterest, wood has started to reappear in the design of bicycle frames, with models in wood, bamboo or bamboo fiber.
