Bamboo Bicycle Frame.

Brano Meres' Bamboo Framed Bicycle. Brano built this bicycle using bamboo as frame rods. Apparently, it worked quite well:

When I built this bamboo frame, I was interested in how would it differ from my carbon frame. Above all I expected that thanks to the unique properties of bamboo, as a natural composite, the frame would be more able to absorb road shocks and the ride would be more comfortable.

Now, after one year, I can write that the bamboo frame fulfilled all my expectations. The frame is excellent and still okay. Compared with the carbon frame it really does dampen vibrations better and the ride is more comfortable.

Ah, implementing nature in design. Reminds me of this video I saw yesterday:
