It's hand built by Craig Calfee. The bamboo is hand selected and the lugs are made of hempfiber. They aren't the lightest of bikes or cheapest but they are incredibly beautiful and unique.

dude... I'm so inspired. I'm just about to get back into some serious training again-- I should just go raw again and be done with the on/off raw cycle. Bamboo bike is so rad too.

I will try harder! Awesome that you're spreadin' the word, especially in Australia... good work!

That's a great story to ride with professional athletesmaybe and showing them that you can ride fast as vegan or raw vegan and use a bamboo bike. Maybe bamboo and hemp fiber would be used in large bike factories so that the prize and its weight get accessible to each cycling fan. I just get my first carbon TCR Giant bike: I love it but I will be ready to get a bamboo bike withthe same characterists as my new Giant TCR Advance 2.
Why Lance did try the vegan diet to increase his performance after his Cancer treatment ? He need a good sport nutritionist coach: I go back to school in September for a nutrition degree in France and want to add couple class in medicine sport to become a performance cycling coach with vegan diet in France... my dream is to open a vegan recreation cycling center for track racing in North of Normandy. I will need investors to support me for this long term project with building a private indoor Velodrome with Guest house capacity. Any suggestions ?
