Pittsburgh Shop to Start Building Bamboo Bikes
From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
Nicholas Brungo, an artist who likes working with bikes, has found a way to combine the two interests: creating bamboo-frame bicycles.
The 31-year-old runs a bike repair shop in Lawrenceville, and earlier this month he completed a fundraising drive to buy parts and tools. Over the winter, he plans to build a few of the bikes and by next spring, his Lawrenceville neighborhood—no stranger to new trends—could see people on its streets embracing another one: Mr. Brungo’s bamboo bicycles.
