Far becomes near, Steep becomes level, Hard becomes easy.

We were riding our Electric Bamboo Bikes that we use everyday.They are so easy to ride and so practical that we hardly ever get the car out for daily trips around Point Loma, San Diego. We were running errands  along the shore line near Liberty Station on a beautiful SoCal day. We were only out about an hour, but everyone we passed stopped us to take a look at our bikes. Everyone was fascinated by their looks and one guy, who was just putting his kids in the car, couldn’t take his eyes off them, He struck up a conversation, asking about the bikes. So I asked ‘would you like to try riding one’ He was thrilled and really impressed by the smooth performance and ease of riding it. He was hooked, and we are now building his bike to his unique specifications. Don’t you want to make a statement too?

Theres nothing [quite] new under the sun...

For everyone[including myself] who thought that we are so eco-minded and think outside the box, heres a bamboo Bike, or bicycle as the British like to say, that was being manufactured in 1898 - yes, over 100 years ago.
In Victorian England there were two things happening, the industrial revolution had spurred invention on a massive scale, and the Empire was bringing new materials back to England. Bamboo was a novelty then and like so many things, ahead of its time. The glowing endorsement by a magazine, 'The Cyclist',
"Most luxurious to ride, the bamboo carrying off the usual small metallic            vibrations in a most marked way"
is as true today as it was 120 years ago. The suppleness of the bamboo frame gives a truely smooth enjoyable ride over the worst surfaces.

Of course, we at the ELECTRIC BAMBOO BIKE CO do have a few new things that would have impressed the Victorian inventor. A 36 volt mid drive motor with lithium batterypack, and GPS Tracker alarm systems that will text your smart phone if someone tries to take your beloved Bamboo Bike. And talking of Smart phones, you can even recharge your phone from the onboard batterypack, perfect for those longer MP3 music infused, GPS routed rides when you just had to Tweet someone.

We live in San Diego, California, well, Point Loma to be precise. My wife and I like to bicycle around for exercise and to enjoy the scenery. The hills can be very steep and my wife strained a ligament in her knee riding up a really steep hill one weekend, she could really use an electric bike, and I like the idea of these new bamboo bikes, utilizing natural materials and low carbon footprint. 
So I thought mmmm… I’m an Engineer. I could build one, only better. So that’s how the Electric Bamboo Bike Company came about. Take a look. You ought to buy one for your wife. Details Here
