Australian design student Alexander Vittouris has come up with this mavellous idea where the bamboo, known for it's strength and lightweight, is actually grown to the shape of the bike's frame.
Called the Ajiro, this prototype features a green growing canopy, a windscreen and an underseat storage made from woven bamboo. The back wheels do the steering but I'm not sure how the rest of this wonderful machine works.
So might we now have bicycle farms where bamboo frames and spare parts are harvested when ready.
"A new handlebar sir, certainly we've just picked a new crop this morning".
Quite a concept. Quite beautiful...
