In the quiet Municipality of Victoria are six men trained to build bicycle frames out of bamboo.
They make all kinds of frames – from those of road bikes to beach bikes.
The frames are of export quality, actually. Should the men encourage and train more builders from their village for mass production, I believe they wouldn’t have a hard time selling these babies. After all, foreigners have already purchased completed bamboo bikes and brought them back to their homelands.
That’s Angelo, our media team’s Marketing Specialist. He’s a bike enthusiast, always on the trails on his days off.
