More bamboo bikes – a tandem this time

Calfee bikes has now produced a tandem (bicycle built for two) in bamboo. About 25% of their bikes are now bamboo and many are being raced. The ride is reported to be excellent.

The link is to a portion of the Calfee site with an article on a trip to Ghana by Craig Calfee. He went with a view to helping local builders produce bamboo bikes for local use. Interesting article. Use the links on the left hand side of the page to look at some of the bikes produced by the firm.

The above noted site has some great photos of assembling bamboo frames.
