Instructables: Bamboo Bike

June 12th, 2010 [print] No comments

Speaking of bamboo bike frames, if you’re more of the DIY type, BAMBOOBIKER over on just put up a new post on how to make your own.

Basically, you’ll need an old frame, some bamboo tubing, and a whole lot of free time, but it looks like a great project for someone who likes to get their hands dirty.

Organic Bikes Dylan Bamboo Frame

June 12th, 2010 [print] 1 comment

CyclingCloseouts–the same store where I bought my EighthInch Scrambler V2–is now selling the Dylan Bamboo frame by Organic Bikes.

The frame is made of bamboo tubing, with recycled aluminum lugs, and sells for $400, which is a pretty decent price for a bamboo frame.  Or you can get a complete bike for $799.99 (singlespeed or fixed gear) or $849 (3-speed with a Shimano Nexus hub).  As is typical with CyclingCloseouts, you get to pick out your components if you go with the complete bike.
