Bamboo Bike for Heart, Lung Exercise

Looks cool! A work of art!

I was flipping an old copy of Newsweek magazine when I came across this fine Bike, ITS MADE FROM BAMBOO!

How strong is this bamboo bike? Calfee designs, the guys who pioneered use of carbon fiber material on racing bikes claim on their site that “a Calfee Bamboo bike won 1st place in the open class at the Great Western Bicycle Rally’s Concourse d’Elegance show.”

I was schooled in a boys boarding school and I remember our principal had a bamboo stick that he used to spank anyone who misbehaved. Today, Corporal punishment has been banned in Kenya schools and its good to know their is now a better use of bamboo stick than using it as a weapon.

Bamboo Bike Features:

  • High performance frame. Weighs about 4 pounds but has good stiffness.
  • Crash tolerant. Bamboo is a lot of tougher than most people realize.

Do you ride a bike as part of your cardiovascular exercise? May be you should try a new bamboo bike.
