Bambú Campos Bikes’ range uses sustainable materials for an eco-friendly, yet elegant, ride
Spanish company Campos Bamboo Bikes is merging the hip fixed-gear bike scene with the green movement via its new eco-friendly line of bicycles.
This unique range comes in a variety of models including fixed, single speed and urban. Once the customer has chosen the way in which they prefer to ride, they can then take the reigns in the design process as the stylish collection is completely customizable. Buyers can choose from different colors, sizes, geometries and components to ensure their finished product is perfectly original and brings out their personality while they ride.
The company is run by a father and son duo whose store is located in Zaragoza in Northern Spain. The raw materials they use are sourced from Asia and are more sustainable than aluminum and steel, which are typically used in the building process, because of the way they’re sourced, produced and the minimal amount of pollution they create during the waste process.
Bamboo is used due its similarities to non-raw materials. It’s as strong as steel and reduces impact caused by vibrations. The sticks are treated with heat and resins and are bonded together using carbon fiber, which is as light as aluminum. Every single bamboo stick the team uses is specially picked and crafted for use, taking more than 40 hours of their hard, hand-made graft to transform into the bike of someone’s dreams.
The team at Campos Bamboo Bikes doesn’t stop there. They hold informative workshops and also have a one-on-one bespoke service where clients can come in and talk about their bike aspirations to ensure they get exactly what they’re looking for. And if curious bike aficionados want to test out certain parts, they’re available to buy separately so potential customers can trial them and truly see whether this new, hip-meets-green cycle movement is for them.
