bamboo bikeBamboo has captured the imagination of American manufacturers — providing the material for everything from plush tee shirts to baseball bats to flooring. Count in a bicycle shop owner whose bamboo bikes could "provide rudimentary transport — and jobs — in the emerging world," where bamboo is abundant. (LA Times) Thanks to Andrew for the link!

  1. Thanks for posting again Geri! A cool thing is (for bike riders like myself ) that it’s a quality material, gives a comfortable ride, like the best steel, titanium and even better than carbon. I found another link of a guy who built his own mountain bike out of it, and it’s still going strong. He prefers it to his carbon fiber bike! I did not know this stuff just grows by itself like grass (well it IS grass, amazing). Some other guy is building wheels too now.
