Default Re: Wooden It Be Nice?

Very neat idea here.

One word of caution: I doubt very much if a bicycle could possibly get anywhere near 30 miles from a pound of wood. Even though I'm no authority on this, I just know that wood doesn't have that kind of energy density. Charcoal could be a bit better, but not all that much.

But this doesn't really matter. Anyone here who makes the attempt to build something like this probably won't be looking for mileage anyway. It'll be for the thrill and sense of accomplishment.

Entirely worthy goals, there.

Just be warned that there was at least some pie-in-the-sky in this thread.
