California based bicycles designer Craig Calfee creates these masterpieces and backs them with a 10 year warranty! The high end models of these go from between $2,000-$3,000 BUT if you are interested in putting in some hard work and a weekend of dedication into creating a bike, you should take a trip to Brooklyn.
“The Bamboo Bike Studio is a Brooklyn-based venture which teaches people to create their own bike frame out of the renewable and √¢‚Ç¨≈ìperformance-positive√¢‚Ç¨¬ù material, bamboo. Working in collaboration with the Earth Institute at Columbia University and the Millennium Cities Initiative, the studio offers a two-day course where bike enthusiasts can learn building techniques and when the weekend is over, ride away on the finished product.” [PSFK]
Your bike may not look as pretty as Craig Calfee’s designs but for those of us on a budget I think the classes will prove to be worth the fee.
