Martijn Koomen and Tadas Maksimovas teamed up with WE ARE Pi organization to dispatch The Pi Bike a couple of days before Pi Day which is praised on March fourteenth, the nearest date to the numerical number “pi”.

Initially brought about by Malaysian artist, craftsman, and visual architect Tang Yau Hoong, the Pi Bike was enlivened by London-based craftsman Tadas Maksimovas and Dutch creator Martijn Koomen, who eventually created the eccentric vehicle from carbon fiber.

The duo perfected the prototype over several iterations, first creating a paper model then adapting it to the proportions of an industry-standard bicycle.

Scale models produced using cardboard and plywood were changed, balanced, and tried before molds were thrown from pitch, sanded down, and collected for the primary full form.

As for the hardware, an 8bar Super crankset, Nitto track racing bars, and Hydra fixed-gear wheels were used to complete the infamous pi bike.

The seat is incorporated with the flick of the best bar of the pi-formed casing. For the last touch, working rendition of the bicycle, new forms were created from more grounded upheld carbon and reassembled.

While there are no future plans to create the Pi Bike industrially, the one existing case will show up at different galleries and displays around Amsterdam.
