The Bamboosero concept was developed by legendary bike builder Craig Calfee to help people in struggling economies by making a common resource more valuable. The Bamboosero is made from locally available and sustainable bamboo and hemp fiber. Hemp fiber and plastics are extremely durable with properties similar to carbon fiber. Of course hemp is a sustainable resource costing many times less than carbon fiber, and can be found nearly anywhere people are to be found. The program works like this. Bamboosero helps bike builders set up production and infrastructure, then buys the bikes from those local manufacturers, and then markets the bikes to the U.S. and European markets. Taking the idea even further, you can actually follow the money on their website to see where every penny of the retail price goes.
