'Craft Bicycle' is a beautiful collection of handcrafted Bamboo Bikes designed by a team in Bucharest, Romania. These two-wheelers are both fashionable and eco-friendly. The team's mission, "change every aspect of riding a bike using only high quality products and sustainable materials" sums up the company's goal beautifully.

According to Craft Bicycles, bamboo is stronger than steel but as light as aluminum, it is four times more shock absorbent than carbon fiber, it has no weak fibers and it's sustainable because it is the fastest growing plant on earth. The bikes have a sleek and classic feel to them with the wooden grass plant dominating their look. Each frame is handcrafted and takes nearly 60 hours to complete.

With all that said, consumers can understand why these bamboo bikes may be a better option for them considering they have a beautiful and sturdy designs and are crafted to be a sustainable product.
