Calfee Design has taken bicycles to a whole new level of green with their custom bamboo bike frames. As if biking weren't already one of the healthiest, greenest and most fun modes of transportation, now you can do it on strong, sustainable bamboo frames that are built custom as per the weight of the rider. The bikes are good for everyday riding as well as racing. And, in addition to winning numerous design awards, the makers of the bamboo bike are proposing that countries like Ghana explore the opportunity of making the bikes locally out of their own renewable bamboo supplies to stimulate their economy while making bikes available to locals for personal transportation use. Neato! Check out the Bamboo Bike Project for more info.
