Man, these wood handlebars for bikes are really appealing…. Andy (the maker) writes-

Each set of my handlebars, carefully crafted entirely by hand, is a unique piece of art that will set your bike apart from the masses. Made by bending and clamping thin strips of hard, durable woods together with adhesive inbetween the layers, sanded by hand to the perfect shape and then finished with polyurethane, these bars are made to last. I currently offer two different shapes of handlebars, a basic sweep design and a thicker grip shape I fashioned because I wanted something more substantial to grasp while riding. I offer handlebars both with standard 25.4mm diameter at the stem and the French sized 22.0mm diameter. Check out my inventory to see what bars are currently for sale.

    These are gorgeous, but I wonder how safe they are. What happens if they break in a crash?

    Then again, if you’re riding a fixed gear without a brake (I don’t see any brakes in any of the photos), you might not be concerned about safety so much anyway.
