Growing the Future – New Bamboo and Hemp Bike

I was talking with a friend of mine who is a bamboo advocate and we were discussing how both bamboo and hemp had amazing potentials in todays economy.

But we were stumped as to how they could be used together…

Well, enter Bamboosero. The Bamboo and Hemp Bike. By melding bamboo tubes to hemp-fiber lugs you get a very strong and eco friendly bike frame. But that is not all –

Sales Manager Aaron Kaughman say’s, ‘We’ve all heard the saying, “Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he feeds his family for a lifetime.” Kaufman says, “Substitute bicycles for fish and you get the idea behind Bamboosero.”‘ -bikeportland.org

So what does that mean?

According to the bamboosero website:

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 (or woman) 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.

  1. Great idea fellas! I was trying to come up with an idea that used PVC and HempCrete to create a bike frame. I feel it is necessary to manufacture a frame for bikes made with industrial hemp for a more efficient and patriotic way of life. It is very saddening as a veteran to know that all frames are asian made. We could make this a “Made in USA” product sold at half the price which could benefit many americans world wide. Please keep me informed on your endeavor and I will do the same.
