Bamboosero

Bamboo bicycles are renewable, hand-crafted and comfortable.

Bamboosero establishes and supports micro-manufacturers of bamboo bikes in the developing world. Bamboosero builders are currently located in Ghana, Zambia, New Zealand and the Philippines.

Craig Calfee, a frame designer who has built bikes for Greg Lemond and other professional racers, started Bamboosero with the idea that teaching men or women to build bikes is a long-term solution that can have a lasting impact.

Using bamboo makes this possible. It grows in most of the developing world and makes it far easier to supply a bike builder with raw materials, and it makes a common resource more valuable. The Bamboosero idea is simple: connect bike builders in developing countries with bike buyers like you. Buying a Bamboosero Bike doesn’t just get you a great bike, it also helps working families support themselves, injects badly needed foreign currency into struggling economies and creates the production capacity for an incredibly efficient form of local transport – bicycles!
