Building Bamboo Bikes For A Better Future

I thought we’d featured bicycles made from bamboo before but it turns out we haven’t (we’ve featured other things made from it though), so I’d best tell you about an American company which has partnered with people in Ghana to make bicycles from bamboo.

Bamboosero and Calfee Design have got together to make bicycle frames from bamboo and help out people in developing countries at the same time. The team in the US at the fiddly bits and the wheels and sell them over there for around US$950 but also send some bikes back to Ghana to be sold locally.
