Bambike is a bike made of bamboo. Most of the frame is made out of bamboo. The lugs
(or joints) of the Bambike are made of abaca fiber and resin. The component interfaces,
or connection points, are made out of aircraft-grade aluminum.
Bambike, the company is a socio-ecological enterprise based in the Philippines
that hand-makes bamboo bicycles with fair-trade labor and sustainable building practices.
This company is proud of its products which guarantee that only select species of
bamboo is used which are at least as strong as steel in tensile strength and have
higher strength-to-weight ratios.
The bamboo bike frames have been tested for durability, crash worthiness and stiffness.
They are certified to the toughest standards.
The all-terrain frames are certified to the EN 14766:2005 and EN 14781:2005 clause 4.8.
EN 14781 is the toughest standard for road bicycles, and comprises a total of four test clauses for bicycle frames: two impact tests and two fatigue tests involving
100,000 test cycles.
