When I'm researching bike information or when I can't get out for a Maui mountain bike ride, I cruise the web in search of interesting bike news from Maui and around the world. Sometimes, I find amazing things going on in the world of bicycling and bike riding! Remember the hands free mind controlled neuro bike shifter video I shared a few months ago? This time, I found a really cool wood grain trike and a bamboo bicycle. The wood grain trike is handcrafted by an artisan in New Zealand, who founded a custom bike company with his son after realizing the popularity of the one of a kind faux wood bike finish. Check out the video below showing the process. Then, take a look at the bamboo bike video afterward. I wonder why nobody on Maui has started making bamboo bikes!

If you would enjoy seeing more images of these wood grain trikes (or bikes), head over to RobsWoodGrainBikes trike gallery. A bike made from bamboo?!? What! Who knew? Apparently, these bamboo bikes are available as a road bike, a cyclocross and a fixie customizable for track riding. Watch the 3 min showing the making of the bamboo bike.
