So today I discovered that there is a Bamboo bike company in Yorkshire. Simply called Bamboo bikes they handbuild their bikes in Scarborough.
They’ve just launched their 2013 range which includes 26″ and 29er cross country mtb’s a CX bike and a hybrid. The main tubes are made from bamboo with the lugs manufactured in flax fibre.
I’d love a ride, sadly they’re out of my price bracket with frames at £1,199, although full bike builds are actually not that much more and quite keenly priced starting at £1649. More details here.
