naturally fast growing, lightweight and strong bamboo is an ideal material for many applications including bike frames.
while many have seen ross lovegrove’s bamboo design for biomega, a mexican startup named bamboo cycles is building
their own bamboo bikes. selling for 795 USD, these wood based bikes features metal angles with straight runs of
warm bamboo. this bike is a fixed gear, single speed bike with narrow handlebars and a curved rear support that hugs
the back tire. the combination of minimal parts and lightweight materials bring the bike’s total weight to a mere 8.8 kg.
