stumbled across this website, and when the bike is
cream crackered, you can use it to train you creeping
plants in the garden.

Visitng San Diego last summer I stumbled across some Bamboo bikes in front of an LBS and they were indeed real. I even took one for a spin. It had the ride qualities that I guessed primitive lugged carbon fiber might have had. Check this out.

From the site: "Our bicycles and tricycles feature all steel frame construction, and are totally rideable." The frame is wrapped in bamboo/rattan

The ideal fashion accessory for the bell-and-basket crowd.

Think of this as a Kronan woody.
