This bicycle is made from almost all bamboo and other biodegradable parts.
Alexander Vittouris created the "Ajiro" using bamboo, which he molded into shape. Bamboo is very strong, making this a durable bike as well as a beautiful one. According to our pals at Ecolocalizer:
The bamboo bike was derived from techniques used in arborsculpture, a more complex form of topiary, which utilizes specifically modified and grafted plants to create shaped structures which are very strong. The process is also known as “grown mobility”.
Unlike bamboo clothing, this bamboo bike doesn't rely on heavy processing and chemicals. It uses bamboo's natural properties to make something durable and practical.
How awesome would it be to grow fields of bamboo bicycles? Talk about sustainability!
