Could bamboo bikes be the next big thing we'll see on the streets of London?

Comments (5)

As the capital strives to get more cyclists friendly (how is that going Boris..?), these panda approved DIY bikes from Camden, Maine, sound pretty cool - and what a great sustainable mode of transportation!

Launched in 2008 to develop a better bike for the developing world, the Bamboo Bike Studio dedicates itself to 'building a more affordable, higher quality bicycle made from locally sourced bamboo and labour.'

While their initial work targeted consumers in the developing world, they've since expanded their efforts in the US and now have bike studios in cities like San Francisco, and Toronto in addition to its Camden, Maine headquarters.

For DIY fans there is also now the option to buy build it yourself kits. Take that IKEA!
Choose between The Local (the perfect cruiser for meandering around town) or The Express (for those that enjoy longer fitness inspired rides).
