Bamboo single speed city bicycle built over two weekends at the Bamboo Bike Studio. I wanted a new bike which was lighter than my 20-year-old touring bike. The folks at the Bamboo Bike Studio lead workshops where you choose what type of bike you’d like, and customize the components. Then you show up at their Red Hook studio, and build it with their guidance. Each bike is measured and designed to fit the builder. Super challenging working with the materials and shaping and tweaking the bike throughout the process. Amazing experience! And a fabulous bike for riding in the city. More here on NPR.
