The bamboo bicycle is not only cool, but it is appropriate for everyday use too!

To increase production and improve design Craig Calfee has reportedly experimented with growing bamboo into pre-formed shapes in the field by forcing the bamboo through carefully placed barriers, the naturally straight plant grows with the bends and curves he needs for frames and components.

How about that, Craig! The Calfee design is now built in the Tetra and Dragonfly Tandem bicycles to meet each rider's specific needs.
