Bamboo bike – just not completely

“I was kind of disappointed when I realised the bike was not completely bamboo. The joins are metal.”


Notes: A leftover from the Naked Bike Ride, I finally saw a bamboo bike and had a chat. I keep reading about them and was tickled to see one. And I had the same surprise when I realised the bamboo design was held together by metal joins. Of course that is how it has to be. Just I was expecting it to be 100% bamboo frame.

Still a ridiculously brilliant idea for a bike.
