Calfee's Bamboo Bike Gets In LA Times

Published November 12, 2007

LOS ANGELES, CA (BRAIN)—Calfee Design's bamboo bike got some love in yesterday's LA Times.

The LA Times highlighted different outdoor equipment for being green including surfboards, skateboards, snowboards and Calfee Design's bamboo bike.

Calfee has produced 100 frames with each starting $2,695. What makes them unique might not be their limited product numbers, but rather the quality of the ride. One customer rode 500 miles in a day on the bike.

Owner Craig Calfee calls bamboo "tougher than carbon fiber in terms of impact resistance" but about a pound heavier.
