bamboo bike

talking about the bike fashionz, bamboo bikes are now an organic alternative to your steel fixie. recently holidaying in hoian, vietnam, i came across this couple in the old town.

the joints are welded and look quite rock solid. IMG_9333if unable to fit into your suitcase, alibaba can ship* you a bamboo bike frame (US $ 120 – 170) from danang for you to diy. *no idea how alibaba shipping works.

we rode in and out of hoian old town, the beach and the local burbs on bikes we hired from the hotel. tourists would love to fly around on bamboo – someone to pick up as a local business.
