We’ve traveled on a bicycle around the city, we’ve seen the best street-style looks for cycling, we’ve met different groups of cyclists and the fixed gear bicycle fans…

When it looked like there was nothing new left to discover from our favorite conveyance, we found the bamboo bicycles.

They’re pretty, they’re “green” (or ecofriendly), they’re original and as resistant as any other. Just like cardboard furniture, at first it may look as if the raw material is not right for the use it has been given, until you try it out.

For example, the bamboo that is used to make the bicycles of Bamboocycles comes from the state of Veracruz and it’s treated to increase its strength and endurance and the joins are manufactured with steel and reinforced with carbon fiber.

The best thing about bamboo bicycles is that they don’t pollute during the manufacturing process. And obviously, as any other standard bicycle, it doesn’t pollute while you use it. And if you live in an apartment where you have to carry it up and down, you’ll be thankful that it weights less than 10 kilos.

Moreover, if you swap your regular means of transport for a bicycle, just travelling to work and back you’ll loose like 7 kilos in a year and besides that, you’ll save money in transportation and in medical visits. If your job is less than 5 kms away from your home, a bicycle is perfect.

Is there anything else you need to convince you to ditch the car in favor of a bike? Well just think how easy it will be to find a parking space!
