well not only smart but also a artist. sadlly I'm not even close on my photografic skills and all the fotos are kind of over expose,, sorry about that.


I when to a "Human Power Expo" at Fairfax, pretty much the birth place of the Mountain bike, the Human power parts was kind of lamme but I got to see some old friend like Joe Breeze and other awesomes gals and dude,,plus a milion little kids having fun.... specially got to see this Incredible Bambo bikes from mister Calffe...


Words just can not explain how beutyful this frames are, Detail upon Detail curve after curve


Seriusllly if nature was ever to make a "BIcycle tree" (you know like the Trees that grow money) this will be the most exotic and saw after of them all.


they even made the forks out of bambo, using 20Mm dropouts from a marerick fork


this Legs are sexier than Gina lolobriggida


this is maybe my favorite detail, the upper triple clamp is a Composite rap-around marvel.


is not also pretty but very advance in technological terms ussing a 14 rolloff hub and the timing chain running on the right side.


you can see even better on this picture.


even the bars are made of carbon, ussing a aluminum insert, i believe from a Race face stem.


The Seat,,,Oh man the SEATS


i hope you guys and gals enjoy it,,for sure was very inspiring,,,oh the thing cost more than many cars and is about 32 pounds,,,they say..

Saw said prototype bamboo "woodie" at Interbike. Craig said that after more extensive testing, this "woodie tandem" could be available in about a year. No price even hinted at.
Craig, "the father" of c/f tandems and singles is not just an innovator, but a real artist to boot!
He has sold a few of his bamboo singles, so the tandem was a logical progression for him.
Thanx for the great photos . . . and by the way, your English is as good as anybody's!
English was my fifth language, so appreciate we're you're coming from. Keep up the good posts and photos!
