Bamboo

Beautiful Bamboo Bicycle.

Bamboosero offers bamboo frames for $500 that are hand made at the source of the bamboo as an effort to offer developing economies decent jobs.

It would be safe to say these bikes have the greenest footprint during production. Bamboo is amazingly green and the manufacturing requires no electricity.


This line is offered by Calfee, who makes a high-end bamboo bike.

Featured at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Richmond, Virginia last week.

Frames of the future?
Probably not, but very cool.
