My bike enthusiast friend Wallace put me on to Wheel Fanatyk. (Thanks Wallace!) The man behind this blog built a wood bike for the Pope (pictured below). The bike seat will be the only thing the Pope will be resting his nuts on...Ha. Wheel Fanatyk is dedicated to Ghisallo classic tubular and clincher wood rims, the Morizumi spoke threading machine, and tips on wheel building. Peep the site here.
