bamboo is lightweight, strong and it grows quickly.
Why it’s not a more ubiquitous material is lost on me. It’s best known use, in recent years at least, is bicycles. It’s no surprise that after its inception a few years back, several designers have jumped at the chance to work with bamboo on bikes of their own. The latest design comes from the Mexican startup, Bamboo Cycles. Their fixed gear, single-speed model features metal angles, a curved rear support and weighs in at less than 20 pounds. If there’s a bike-lover on your holiday shopping list who’s been extra nice this year, this two-wheeled beauty is a moderately priced $325.
