Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo survives by bending with the wind

Craig Calfee is now growing bamboo into preformed shapes for his custom bamboo bikes.

By forcing the bamboo to grow through carefully placed barriers, the naturally straight plant grows with the bends and curves he needs for frames and other components.

Calfee said he's experimenting with a limited number of plants, but can envision fields full of bamboo. "It's like mass production," he said. "A factory in a field. You can have row after row of bamboo growing into the right structures for bike frames."
