Sustainable Bamboo Bikes
Greenstar's mission is to create quality bikes using the most socially and environmentally responsible materials and procedures available. With virtually no barriers to entry, no harmful emissions or byproducts, and no complicated infrastructure needs, bamboo is the perfect cash crop for emerging economies. Harvesting is simple and requires no complex machinery. Greenstar Bikes uses bamboo harvested by family farmers. And there's no work to be done after the harvest: no plowing, reseeding, or soil reclamation.
Choice of colours (Blue/Green/White). Currently $399.99US (was $499.00US)
The Ecoforce 1 is a single speed bamboo road bike with a reversible rear hub that easily converts it to a fixed-gear bicycle or fixie. The bamboo frame is very stiff yet still provides a smoother ride than steel or other alloys.
The Ecoforce 1 combines performance and beauty with environmental and social responsibility to deliver a fully functional work of art. Bamboo is one of the most environmentally sound and socially responsible natural materials on the planet. It grows fast, requires no pesticides or herbicides, and can be harvested over and over again without killing the plant. It's also stronger than steel, light as aluminum, and stiff like carbon fiber.
Currently Shipping Availability to Canada, USA. 4-6 weeks.
