What a great idea and I want one. I've been following Craig Calffie's bamboo bike project for a few years now. They are expensive but have a lot of merit and cool factor. Anyway when I read this article that you were going to be able to by versions of these bike but produced locally in Africa with the profits going back to the makers I was in. Also the fact that they are going to be cheep helped as in: USA built $2600+; Africa built $475.

I have all the parts spare to build it up, it's pay day and it's for a good cause let's go for it. Well it's never that simple. I checked the Acifa bike web site and the buy a bike page is blank. Also, the Calffie site has no mention of it.

I guess I'll just have to wait and see when I can get my Bamboo Bike.
