Bamboo bike?

#1 Postby Potentialvegan » Tue Mar 22, 2011 7:23 am

Hello everyone,

I was wondering what is the difference between the bamboo made by phil webb on bamboobikemaker.com and calfee bamboo bike? I would definitely buy the bamboo fom phil because it is much cheaper since I am a college student. But I would also like to know more between the 2 bamboo bikes. Also, is there any good bicycle helmet and other gears I should look for? I am new to the bicycling world but later on in life I would like to cycle instead of driving in a car (gas price is ridiculous lol). For now my plan is to just ride the bicycle from home to school and later on do training involving cycling.

There's a man in Oakland who makes fixies outta bamboo. I imagined that they'd look cooler than these

I guess you could say durianrider inspired me to ride one of these bamboo bike (lol). It seem like a stupid reason but after becoming vegan and learning many new things I would not expect I wanted to help the environment too.
