Bamboo Bike

Use bamboo to rebuild your old bicycle and make it truly unique!
If you are a real bike nerd and you’re crazy enough, prepare yourself to make something really cool. I couldn't forget about the amazing Bicycle Sidecar project. I've always wanted to have an extraordinary bike, but as usual those are definitely not in my budget. Surfing on the internet, I found a crazy idea of using bamboo to make a bike frame. You need to see it!

One of the contributors of ‘Instructables’ came up with the idea how to build a bamboo bicycle. When he found out that professionally built bamboo frames cost a few thousands dollars, he decided to build something more budget-friendly. He gives a detailed explanation on how to build the construction, and using his step-by-step instructions and helpful notes we can give it a try. Don’t forget to check your bamboo frame before your first ride.

Would you be ready to use the idea in practice? If you have any other ideas how to create uncommon bike frame, feel free share them on our website in user gallery!
