The Artistry In Wood Special Exhibit Will Be Functional Wood Bicycles By Jay Kinsinger
They are beautiful but are they functional or are they art? The answer is, both. Jay Kinsinger makes beautiful wood bicycles and they are fully functional. He and his family have traveled Europe and the U.S. on them. His road bike has logged a thousand hours. He has also made tandem and electric-assisted bikes. He likes black walnut for the frame but there have been cherry and cedar. The frame members are two hollow pieces glued together. Laminating the parts, he says, makes them stronger. Jay said, “Man-made Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRPs, example: carbon fiber) is the latest craze in bicycle frame material. Wood is the original, God-made FRP. My bicycle frames are hollow and incredibly lightweight. Additional benefits of a wooden frame are that they are green, tough, smooth to ride, and beautiful.” Whoever rides one is struck by how smoothly they ride.
Jay Kinsinger is an engineer and teacher. He is Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering at Cedarville University. His hobbies include, of course, woodworking and bicycling. In 2014 one of Jay’s road bikes won Best of Woodworking at Artistry in Wood.
