So far today Bamboobee is what I am most excited about. Not only is it a bamboo bicycle company, but my favorite part is that they offer a DIY Bamboo Bike Kit! Yes you read it right, you can build your own bike with their kit! But before I get into that stuff, let’s talk about their City Mi bike. This uses what they call their “Honeywax Infused Technology frame” with a retail price that ranges from $589 to $839. The wheels aren’t made of bamboo, but it is what they call “bamboo infused”, which basically means it’s laminated with bamboo.
Ok for the cool stuff. Check out this kit. So it comes with everything you need. All the bamboo to build a bicycle frame and the best part, the jig is in the box! Yep, you an be rest assured that you’ll line up your frame parts because of the available jig. The only thing you need is epoxy.

Bamboobee is trying to break into the US market and hopes to find a distributor while at Interbike.
