Bamboobee needs your support to help make handcrafted bicycles for everyone. 

I need to stretch until $120 000 k so that I can improve the infrastructure and build a holistic business environment. This could allow me to achieve the heart of the business that wishes to create a handcrafted bicycle that will connect with nature and society again. Please help us share Bamboobee bicycle and own one.  

                             -------------------------------------------------------------

How did Bamboobee come about?

I knew that Bamboobee was going to be my life mission after my experiences on the Circle of life journey. From the highest snow covered mountain passes of Central Asia to the scorching deserts of China, my first self-crafted bamboo bicycle carried me through the toughest terrains in the world for 3,792 miles (6,103km).

CircleofLife Expedition

The faces of countless villagers and curious children shared the joy, nodding their heads as they learned about the science behind the bamboo. With my engineering training, I knew I could convey the beauty and mindful freedom that comes with a sustainable mode of transport.

The crystallisation of these experiences, expeditions, stringent product and road tests resulted in the current range of Bamboobee bicycles you see today.

Each of our Bamboobee frame takes 38 hours of refined craftsmanship by our skilled artisans- creating a product of pure passion to provide a choice for simplicity and happiness on cycling. And combined with today's technologically advanced gearing and electric wheel systems, there is a bicycle for everyone to enjoy.

Why Kickstarter?

After 3 years of research, designing, prototyping and traveling around the world in search for the right bamboos, Bamboobee has developed a range of handcrafted bicycles that combines nature and technology. And all these were achieved with myself managing volunteer support from friends and mentors who believed in me.

Our mission is to make Bamboobee the choice of lifestyle cycling. To reach the mass market, we need to offer it at an affordable and competitive price and this requires going into sizable production.

What Bamboobee has achieved over the 3 years

Our target of $40,000 will allow us to create the molds and procure the 23 other parts of the bicycle in bulk to lower production costs. And Kickstarter is the perfect platform to raise funds, share and garner support for the Bamboobee handcrafted bicycle.

Why Bamboo?

Bamboo provides a sense of amazement in terms of shape, touch and physical characteristics. The shape and curve of the bamboo is influenced by the environment it is grown in. Regardless of the environment and constraints, it will keep growing to reach out for more sun.

This spirit of persistence inspires positive energy and this positive energy influences the touch and physical characteristics of the bamboo- A quick wash on the bamboo reveals a shiny surface. A quick touch of the bamboo gives off a remarkable feeling that objects it makes will be more beautiful and unique. Finally, the resilient bamboo has strong physical characteristics that qualifies it as one of fittest in the world. 

This perspective on bamboo got me excited and gave me energy. And inspired by the ability of bicycles to bring back fond childhood memories, I decided to use the bamboo to build my bicycle for my Central Asia expedition. Along the way, I also discovered that bamboo's honey comb structure creates a natural dampening property which helps to make the ride smooth and comfortable. 

Apart of the technical aspects and properties of Bamboo, I personally experienced how a natural material like bamboo and a bicycle can spark of conversations again between people during my expedition. As technology advances and facilitates communication, it does seem funny that conversations between people in dense societies have in fact reduced. 

Bamboobee aims to use bamboo to help bring back the conversations that we may miss because of technological progress.

We are launching a range of bamboo accessories and 2 ranges of Bamboobee bicycles on Kickstarter, namely - the "Bamboobee Revolution" range and the "Bamboobee Sunny" range. These items are specially crafted and are now going for a special Kickstarter rate. 

**Once the Kickstarter campaign is over, the usual retail price will prevail again. There is no better time to grab your rewards than today! 

                     -------------------------------------------------------------

Stretch Goals

Please continue to share or pledge for us. The base goal will kickstart the processes that have already been designed over the past 3 years. To continue research, design and developing more possibilities, Bamboobee needs will need a little more funds.

Bamboobee's ideal aim is not simply producing bicycle that is inspired from nature. We have ideas of how to build better natural bicycles inspired and designed by nature for people.

For example, you can choose the bamboo frames that you have contributed to be given back to you, or to build a children bicycle or use the bamboo to build another Bamboobee bicycle at a special rate. This helps to create a holistic approach in the production cycle. Depending on the amount raised, I can kickstart more processes at a shorter time. 

Support us by sharing Bamboobee on Twitter and Facebook or giving a pledge. Thank you once again.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

At our current stage, we have accumulated enough knowledge and expertise such that Bamboobee bicycles are no longer a home-made beginner product. It is a product backed up with research, 3 years of testing, in-house technologies and certifications. Our workshop is not operated by large computer system or robots but our skilled artisans. 90% of the processes are handled by our skilled artisan's hands.

This is why you will love Bamboobee products too. It is a design inspired by nature for people, show casing the original music tone from nature.

As each bamboo is different, the material and color will vary according to many factors such as, the time at which the bamboo is chopped or unpredictable weather conditions around the village. These are some of the real issues, risks and challenges that Bamboobee faces everyday.

1) Natural Bamboo's Surface
Problem - Each bamboo is unique in terms of its thickness, natural surface finishing and color tone. Bamboobee does not use any artificial treatment to change the aesthetic aspects of bamboo. The Bamboobee bicycle is kept as natural as it is.

Bamboobee has stringent quality control protocols in place for all aspects of Bamboobee bicycles, including aesthetics. For example - if there are too many spots on the bamboo or if the smaller branches on the bamboo affects the overall aesthetics, it will be rejected.

2) Natural Bamboo's Probability of Cracking

Problem:
When bamboo is not processed (e.g. bamboo plywood), the possibility for the bamboo to crack is high. It is its natural tendency to crack as the fibers of bamboo are parallel to each other. When bamboo dries up, the water between them will cause the fiber to split.

Even if it splits, the bamboo tubes used in bicycles are as strong as steel. This is unlike carbon fiber frames which will snap and collapse.

Solution:
Bamboobee has 2 in-house technologies to tackle this problem. Our bamboo have been tested in many different places under different weather conditions. After 6 months of testing, we are proud to say that our technologies have proven to be very effective. We have reached a 5% crack rate and we are continuously working to lower that percentage to 0%.

On a side note, the users' environment may which may differ from normal test condition weathers may affect the cracking. Please understand if it cracks naturally. Bamboobee will do an exchange the frame if the crack affects the quality of the ride. It is a natural bicycle after-all.

3) Bamboobee Bicycle's Aesthetics

Problem:
Bamboobee does not change the aesthetics of the bamboos that we use, such as peeling of the 1st layer of the bamboo skin so that all bamboos look more consistent. We believe that the bamboo should stay as original as it is.

Solution:
One of our in-house technologies helps to maintain the base color of the bamboo to a similar tone. This will ensure that your bamboobee bicycle is designed based on nature.

4) Bamboobee's Delivery Schedule -
Problem:
Bamboobee does not rely on robots to build your bicycle. The processes are all by done by hand through skilled workmanship. We commit to deliver on time and if in the case where we cannot meet the deadline, we will inform 2 weeks in advance.

Solution:
After 2 years of experimenting and formalising the processes, we are committed to make it happen. With your support, we may be able to purchase better tools and hire more skilled craftsmen to increase the production and deliver earlier.

  • It is Bamboo's natural characteristic is to crack during extreme weather changes. Bamboo is safer than carbon fiber, as any crack will not cause the tube to snap and endanger lives. It is very safe to keep cycling when the bamboo tube is cracked. The crack only usually lowers the aesthetic value - I have tested it personally by cycling home from Central Asia. By accessing each case separately, we will change the frame one-to-one if needed. Smaller cracks can be fixed by a inhouse patch up fiber to cover it.

    Therefore we have came out with 2 inhouse technologies to prevent the cracks.
