Build Your Own Bamboo Bicycle

High-end bamboo bikes aren't new, but building your own? That's new. According to KXLY News, you can do it in London at the Bamboo Bicycle Club, where experts are teaching people to build their own bikes entirely from bamboo. London too far to go for a cool bike? You can also buy a home-build kit to be shipped anywhere in the world.

Not only is bamboo sustainable, it also offers a superior ride according to some bicycle aficionados, because it is light, durable, and has natural shock-absorbing qualities.

Kits range rom $360 to $460, and come in various designs, including road bikes, mountain bikes and even tandems. Not mechanically gifted or having trouble figuring out your kit? The team at the Bamboo Bicycle Club even offers Skype chats, where they give kit buyers advice on assembling the bikes.
