You may have thought you’ve seen it all when it comes to weird and wacky bikes, but today that changes. The people at Play To DIY took two months in constructing the first-ever concrete bike. It’s no lightweight, coming in at 134.5 kg, but the construction process is super interesting, as is documented in the video below. “We made the first concrete functional bike in the whole world, it’s crazy! Its weight of 134.5 kg makes it very unusual but its construction process is extremely entertaining, we experimented a lot to show you this result and I hope you enjoy it.”
