Have you ever ridden a bike? Have you experienced the unmitigated exuberance that rushes through your body as you accelerate to the max whilst riding a bike down a hill? ‘Cause I know I have. Bikes truly are t-riffic (especially this energy generating green bike).

But now, thanks to Calfee Design, they are even greater. This guy makes bamboo bikes, which look awesome AND are strong as heck. Plus, since they’re made from bamboo instead of carbon fiber, they have a lower carbon footprint than normal bikes.

But to get one of these green bikes made from bamboo, you gots to pay a lot of green. The cheapest bamboo bike frame Calfee sells is about $1,700, so start saving your money if you’re planning on getting one of these mamma jammas.

  1. This is the first time I hear that a bike can be made from bamboo. I am amazed by this idea and I wish if I could ride it. Thanks for this wonderful post and I will search internet for more details regarding this. I hope that I can own one bamboo bike.
