No, I’m not going to build a bamboo recumbent but I find them very interesting. I’m not sure what started this interest. Probably my morning routine. I normally start each day reading a couple of the forums I frequent, then a few other blogs that I like and then a couple of news sites. From one of these I probably followed a link to a bamboo bike and then a search for bamboo bikes. I’m sure you know the routine. You follow a link of interest that leads to another link of interest and so on.
This week I noticed this beautiful bamboo trike built by a fellow Atomic Zombie builder, Here is a thread on Atomic Zombie and here is a build post on Instructables. It’s just loaded with useful information. This is one of most beautiful, useful pieces of transportation I’ve seen.
I’ve noticed quite a few new bamboo bikes and trikes being built. I’ve now started myself a page to track them. I’ll be posting new information and builds as I find them.
