“The best bike is the one that you build yourself.” We couldn’t agree more. If you’ve looking for a new two-wheelin’ ride and a way to hone your mechanical skill set, then check these awesome bike kits from Bamboo Bike Studio. Originally developed by train workers in Africa, the Bamboo Bike Kitincludes all the materials and tools you need to start making your own frames at home. While you’re right to assume an assembly challenge far more intensive than an IKEA armoir, each kit also comes with step-by-step instructions, animations, and PDFs to assist you in your endeavor. And if you still don’t think you’re handy enough to undertake this project all on your own, the Bamboo Bike Studio also offers building workshops in NY and SF, with plans to open other locations worldwide.
