“Bamboo Bicycle Club was founded in 2012. Over the years we have grown from a workshop teaching frame building to also provide kits that are built all over the world. Ours is a club is like no other. Our success comes directly from our collaboration with our builders. Every bamboo bicycle is built by a customer, and our names and reputations ride with each build.” –
