Damu Plycycles is a new look at what bikes can be, from artist and designer David Murphy. Made to measure from sustainably grown Australian timber, reinforced with flax and using the superior qualities inherent with marine plywood, they are proving that they are not just extraordinary and beautiful to look at, but also extraordinary and beautiful to ride.
Timber is carbon positive and capable of absorbing more vibrations without fatiguing than any other material. It competes well on weight, stiffness and durability to more standard bike frame materials, whilst producing bikes that are, in essence, works of art. Damu Plycycles are emblematic of our changing attitudes towards manufacturing materials, consumer goods and our relationship to the natural world, as well as being some of the most beautiful bikes on the planet.
