5 of the best handmade bicycles
The Boo R
While a bike made of bamboo might sound like a joke, in reality it’s shocking that it hasn’t been done sooner.
Bamboo provides a strong and ultra-light frame while also giving just enough bend to be forgiving on even the most ultra-distance cyclists. The Boo R's been raced, tested at Princeton University and has netted a 100 percent happy customer feedback record – so it's one two-wheeler you should definitely try out if you get the chance.
And of course the bamboo frames (made with some carbon for extra tension and responsiveness) are hand-made.
