Bamboo Bicycle

Appearing crude, like an object created on an episode of Lost, the real value of this radical mountain bike desIgn is more than skin deep. Built using bamboo tubing and hemp rope, these natural materials combine to produce a bicycle frame with degrees of strength and safety that traditional bicycle making materials cannot match.

I would question some of the environmental benefits (adhesives, source of bamboo, etc.) but the general idea is very strong and worth developing. I predict this “light touch” approach to material and production processes will spread into all parts of product design (and I would be thrilled to see Canadian designers owning this territory!).
