This loaded bamboo bike belongs to a man named Ben Masters. He, with the help of our friends at the Bamboo Bike Studio, built this bike on a weekend in early May and then immediately rode it 500 miles in 5 days from Brooklyn to PA.

Going on bike tour sounds beyond amazing right now, and I gotta say I’m a bit jealous of Ben’s new set up. Every time we head down to the city, I get to cruise around on Josh or Justin’s bike for a bit and it’s looking like I need to get down there soon and build myself one.

check out the Bamboo blog, thing’s are really taking off for them. If you’re looking to build yourself your very own bamboo whip, classes are booked through September.
