The Bamboo Bike Studio is a Brooklyn-based venture which teaches people to create their own bike frame out of the renewable and “performance-positive” material, bamboo.  Working in collaboration with the Earth Institute at Columbia University and the Millennium Cities Initiative, the studio offers a two-day course where bike enthusiasts can learn building techniques and when the weekend is over, ride away on the finished product.

The BBS customises each bike to it’s rider, and attendees of the course can work off two bike body styles – ‘Local‘ for the casual, ‘mellow’ rider; and ‘Express’ – suitable for intermediate, urban cyclists who take extended rides.
