Bamboo Bicycles Coming Soon

Carbon started replacing metal in lugged bicycle frames about 30 years ago. Now a Taiwanese company is looking for the next great lightweight material for use in frames - and it may be bamboo. According to this patent application, bamboo has many benefits over carbon, including being lightweight, inexpensive, and renewable. We at SWDELAW think biking is great thing to do for the environment, and now you can have a biodegradable bike! An image from the application is below.
