Bamboo Bicycles.

I came across two interesting characters making bicycles using bamboo frames and I share both with my readers.

The first one is from Ghana and this article will give you all the information on the contraption.

The next one is an Indian and you can see his story in this youtube clip.

    Reminds me that back in the 1940’s I had a scooter which my dad (he was a carpenter) made out of an old orange box and what I can only describe as bits of ‘fire wood’. .. 🙂

    Hello Rummy,

    And those Bamboo bikes look gorgeous too. Very refined details. I love it when human beings get creative and their creativity is one of things I love the most about our brothers and sisters. Your post shows something very beautiful too: worlds apart, different backgrounds, yet brilliant minds remain the same. This post is a true ode to human beauty :).

    Cheers

  9. Bamboo bikes; who knew they made such a thing! One wouldn’t think they’d be all that strong, especially for someone like me. Then again, I know there are different types of bamboo so even though it’s pretty light some of it must be stronger than other types. Freaky! lol

    • Non hollow bamboo poles can be very strong indeed. In South and East Asia, Lathi a heavy pole or stick, especially one used as a club by police is usually of such bamboo. They are stronger than the batons used by Western police and don’t break easily.
