Calfee Bamboo Bike – old-style eco-friendly racer

Calfee

Simply using a bike is eco-friendly enough, but the Calfee Bamboo Bike takes things a step further – as the name suggests, it is made out of bamboo.

Don’t worry, it’s still solid enough for everyday use or racing. Each frame is built to order (which makes it unique), with the bamboo heat-treated and smoke to prevent splitting. A coating of Tung oil then seals it up and gives it a distinctly vintage look. Obviously some things aren’t made of bamboo (everything buy the frame in fact), but you get the point.

Going green isn’t cheap though – these retail from £950 from the company’s dealers – which includes the newly-opened Eco in London.
