Bamboo, The Bamboozled, and The Freebike

Where do I begin?  There's been a few articles that I would like to make it a point to tell you about.





There's a piece on bamboo bicycles in Africa, a smart urban planning article from Washington DC, a Wordpress blogger talking about white privilege, and a USC social entrepreneur who seeks to provide students with bicycles through the academic year.

If you need a spare, look no further.  Just use your mountain bike 36 spoke wheel. Disclaimer: This is not recommended.

I wouldn't go at any high speed, as the tire is at a higher pressure and suited for only so much torsional load.  The consistent load directly…
