3d printed metal bike lugs!

This is the convergence of all of my interests: bikes, 3d printing and shiny things!

I saw it featured over on Hackaday, but it’s just too good to not repost.

This is a bike built up from carbon fiber rods and laser-sintered metallic lugs. There is a whole lot of awesome in that sentence. I’m surprised that it looks like it somehow prints with support and requires a ton of cleanup, but it is 105% awesome regardless.

Here’s the vid.
