This build your own bike kit allows you to make a sustainable bamboo bike at home. From Bamboobee Bicycle, the kit was recently featured on Kickstarter and was wildly successful in its crowdfunding goal.
When you order yours, instead of receiving an already assembled two-wheeled vehicle, you get the opportunity to build your own bike with cut-to-spec bamboo rods, cable clamps, hemp fiber and metal brackets. You also get assembly tools and an instructional manual. Rather than being seen as a flaw, the DIY aspect is a draw for consumers who can relish in their own manual labor.
The Bamboobee Bicycle takes three days to make, considering you have to epoxy glue some parts and that has to dry before construction can continue.
