A Visit to Bike Lab

Today I had the very special opportunity to visit the Bike Lab in Greensboro, AL. This concept was conceived of by Project M, a Design Lab based in Greensboro, Alabama, has teamed up with COMMON Works to turn some of that domestically grown bamboo into bicycle frames (read the background on that story here). This bamboo bike project is the focus of COMMON’s first Maniacal Business Attack (MBA), a “startup accelerator program that encourages visionaries and their newfound constituents to put their collective talents toward making change happen immediately and collaboratively.”

These bikes are beautiful to look at, but damn do I want to take one out for a spin!
