Bicycles made of bamboo

Innovative new uses for plant materials is always such cool thing, but this one is really amazing, and award winning too – a bicycle made from bamboo, thus Boo Bikes (TM). Bamboo is a grass, and it stems are not woody, but all those vascular bundles weaving through the stem are fused together making a very strong, light, flexible plant material. Ride on.
