Bamboo is lightweight and completely recyclable. The production of a bicycle in bamboo does not emit C02, with almost zero impact on the environment, and as organic material is completely biodegradable. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing species in nature, easily regenerating eroded or deforested land. Bamboo has traditionally been used as a building material for its robustness and strength. In Asia, scaffolding has traditionally been made in bamboo and bicycles were the traditional means of transportation. The bamboo is as strong as steel but at the same time has the flexibility to absorb the irregularities of the ground, providing a smooth and pleasant driving.
