All of our Danso Bamboo Bicycle frames are made in the community of Kumasi, Ghana, from locally sourced bamboo and sisal ?bre and assembled on Prince Edward Island.
Bamboo is an amazing material with a long history of use for building materials, furniture, and a host of other items in countries all of the world. Our bamboo is particularly strong with a tensile strength higher than steel, and a compression strength higher than concrete. It truly is a great material to make a bicycle frame from.
Sisal, which is made from the leaves of the agave plant, has been used to make bags, netting, baskets, clothing, carpets, and rope since pre-history. It is very strong, resistant to salt water, and is 100% biodegradable. Danson Bamboo Bicycles uses sisal to join the bamboo together to make the frame. Small aluminum parts are added to allow our frames to accept standard bicycle parts.
