Calfee Bamboo Bikes are all the green rage and are appropriate for everyday use and for racing. Calfee Bamboo Bikes are made from Bamboo that has been smoked and heat treated to prevent splitting. Lugs are made of hemp fiber, for the all-natural look. The chainstays are available in carbon fiber for extra stiffness in the drivetrain. Bamboo bicycles offer advantages to regular metal bikes like vibration damping (Even better than Carbon fiber!) and off course are the greenest bikes you can buy. Each Calfee bamboo frame is built to order and every frame is a unique. Tubes are selected for the weight of the rider. The geometry of the Calfee bamboo frame can be any of our usual geometries: Pro, Tri or Cross. Custom frames can also be made. Mountain Bike frames are now also available. Calfee Bamboo bikes have won awards for Best Road Bike, Best Off-Road Bike and Peoples' Choice Award at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show. If you're looking for a "Bicycle with lowest carbon footprint" (least amount of carbon dioxide emissions in the production of the frame), this bikes frame would win, hands down. You can buy a Calfee Bamboo frame for a price of $2,695. Check out this Calfee Bamboo Bike in action on youtube.
