I stumbled upon Bamboobee‘s high-tech, hand-crafted bamboo bicycles while flipping through an in-flight magazine on a recent journey.
Singapore Management University graduate, Ah Sun Chuah, launched Bamboobee upon returning from his “Circle of Life” expedition, a 6,103 kilometer ride through Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, China, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore, on his homemade bamboo bicycle.
Now, I’m no cycling enthusiast. (An accident several years ago rocked my confidence and left my right knee badly injured. I haven’t pedaled since.) But I am a design enthusiast and I think Bamboobee’s bicycles are beautiful, especially the Revolution Nostalgic (top). I’m a sucker for a bike with a basket!
