Bamboo bicycles built in the developing world
Craig Calfee, a frame designer who has built bikes for Greg Lemond and other professional racers, started Bamboosero with the idea that teaching a man people to build bikes is a long-term solution that can have a lasting impact.Using bamboo makes this possible. It grows in most of the developing world and makes it far easier to supply a bike builder with raw materials. And it makes a common resource more valuable. Much better than mining or cutting down the forest. Oh. . . and it rides like a dream!The Bamboosero idea is simple: connect bike builders in developing countries with bike buyers like you. Buying a Bamboosero Bike doesn't just get you a great bike, it:* helps working families support themselves* injects badly needed foreign currency into struggling economies* creates the production capacity for an incredibly efficient local transport - bicycles!
